Blackout Sportfishing

© Blackout Sportfishing

This 1 day trip.

Departure Information
Departure is from your Carins lodging, Cairns at 6:15 AM every day, return time 4:00 PM.

The Trip

Coming from dry Southern California we are always amazed by the many large pristine River systems there are close to Cairns, and how productive they are for fisherman. Blackout Sportfishing fishes the Daintree, Mulgrave, Russell and Johnson Rivers.

If you've got a favorite river they'll go there. We'd recommend you go with the guide Kerry's local experience and knowledge and let him pick the river. All these rivers are surrounded by majestic mountainous rainforest. Targeted species include Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Finger Mark, Queenfish, Trevally and many more.
