Fishing Hinchinbrook Channel

There are few places more spectacular for fishing than Hinchinbrook Island. With its rainforest peaks and teeming estuaries, it attracts hundreds each of fishermen each year to its abundant waterways. The sheer size of the Hinchinbrook fishing system provides endless locations and hideaways to explore.

Missionary Bay on the Northern side of the island is a particularly great place for fishing as this part of the Hinchinbrook channel stays clearer and it’s not unusual to land a 1metre+ Barramundi. The northern part of the island, with its inlets and channels, is also popular for
fly fishing. On the southern side of Hinchinbrook are the Seymour River and Herbert River systems, with their lush mangrove estuaries. 

Hinchinbrook fishing is great all year around, especially for Barramundi which can be caught at any time, as long as the water remains between 18-30 degrees. There are an estimated 10-20 species of fish in the Hinchinbrook channel, explaining why fisherman love this area.
