Half-day Guided Freshwater Fishing Trip
Copperlode Fish and Kayak
This 1/2 day trip.
Departure is from Your Cairns lodging, Cairns at 8:30 AM every day, return time 2:30 PM.
Lake Morris is one of the hidden gems of the Cairns area. This lake is set high in the mountains behind Cairns, and surrounded by tropical rainforests. Since it's the water supply for the city of Cairns, very few people have every gotten to explore the lake, in fact this is the first time anyone has been granted access to the lake.
Lake Morris has been stocked with bony bream, barramundi, sooty grunter, archerfish, sleepy cod, eel-tailed catfish and mangrove jack..
Mornings on the lake are quiet and beautiful, and you pretty much have the lake to yourself, except for the birdlife and wildlife you'll be sharing it with.
The electric boat used for the fishing trips is the only boat on the lake.
Kim, the owner and your guide, is an engaging and interesting person, with tremendous knowledge of the region and the lake. He’s got 20-years of experience as a fishing guide, and is the only person that’s fished this lake…in short, he’s the perfect guide for this lake.
The lake has many fingers and islands to explore, and due to it's shape and the surrounding mountains, is usually flat and glassy, a perfect place to fish, and on this trip, you have the whole lake to yourself!
