The Mutchero Inlet is a beautiful place to fish, surrounded by thick mangoves and lush rainforest the scenery is as good as the fishing. The inlet is surrounded by large mountains, Mount Bellenden Ker on the southern side of the inlet is the second highest peak in Queensland. To the north another large mountain range Russell Heads separates the Russell River from the ocean. This unique geographic nature makes these 2 rivers receive close to the highest average rainfall in Australia. Both rivers are protected from onshore winds making fishing ideal all year round.

During the wet season the fresh water from both the Russell and Mulgrave River meet at the T junction forming the Mutchero Inlet and after a few days of rain is a great time to target Barramundi. During the dry season the salt water makes its way further upstream were Queenfish and Trevally begin to surface for the avid lure fisherman.

Both rivers are stocked with Barramundi.
