Mossman River Fishing Spots

Mossman River is a small estuary system with fresh water upstream and home to several large crocodiles – which makes for a very healthly system and can fish really well at times. The fresh water creates a good environment to catch small Barramundi, a good place to start is along the rock wall 2 km upstream. Along the rock wall during a run tide creates good eddies (turbulent water) which is great place for predator fish to attack.

There are also a few small feeder creeks which hold lots of Flathead and the occasional Barramundi. The Mossman River banks are mostly lined with mangroves and odd sunken timber. During the outgoing tides the water can run fast from the fresh water running downstream, we found all our Mangrove Jack where the tide hits straight onto a bank of snags and forms an eddie, they were all small and released unharmed.

Further upstream into the fresh water holds Jungle Perch, Sootie Grunter and small Barramundi.

Take caution navigating Mossman River as it can be shallow in some locations (0.8-1m) and you do not want to be stranded in crocodile infested water.

Share this with your mates. We hope you start catching a few fish at Mossman River!
