Fish’s Fly and Sportfishing Charters – Weipa Queensland

Weipa fishing at it’s very best.

Weipa, gateway to the western cape is situated on the eastern side of the Gulf of Carpentaria, and about two-thirds of the way up the western shore of Cape York. Serviced by daily commercial aircraft makes this small mining town one of the most accessible remote locations in Australia.

With protection from the prevailing south easterly winds for most of the year, and a multitude of pristine rivers and coastline for both light tackle sport fishing and flyfishing, the range of species available is second to nowhere else in the country

With more than 55 species of fish available to fly and lure, our fishing trips strive to incorporate walking the beaches and flats, and fishing creeks, rivers and estuary. Our vessels are also set up for fishing offshore for larger pelagic species either with fly or lure.

Come to Weipa and catch such great sportfish as; Queenfish, GTโ€™s, Barramundi, Giant Herring, Golden Trevally, Permit, Milkfish, Spanish Mackerel, Grey Mackeral, Longtail Tuna and many more fish species. Catch Cobia and Golden Trevally off the backs of giant Manta Rays, or walk the pristine beaches and sight cast to cruising Queenfish and Trevally. Almost all of the tropical fish species abound here in an extremely diverse fishing environment.

With purpose built fishing boats and well maintained tackle, we cater for all levels of expertise from raw novice to expert incorporating tuition and discussion on all levels of the sport.

All of our qualified fishing guides have extensive knowledge of all styles of fishing from live baiting to fly fishing and detailed knowledge of the area giving you more effective fishing time on the water.

We can also help you arrange all types of accommodation from self contained cabins to 5 star fishing lodge, with all meals and transfers, and we can cater for individuals and groups of up to 10.

Get together with one, or a few of your mates and embark on the fishing adventure of a life time and let us show you how good fishing Cape York can be.

Steve's last day with Notso was certainly a day of mixed success with some casts at a feeding school of permit going to water, then finally getting a bite and breaking the tippet soon after hookup. Spirits were low, however soon after, a BB was landed from among a couple of feeding permit, then finally a smallish permit succumbed to Steve's self tied crab. From then on the next few shots saw a massive 97cm, 24lb permit followed by two smaller models in the mid 70cm range fall victim to the same fly, making for one memorable afternoon - permit fishing at it's finest!

Slam #2!!
Some fine flats weather today has seen Weipa produce - Steve managing 2 BBs, 3 Tusk fish and a MILF (Mother In Law Fish), despite using a few flies tied on rubber hooks. ๐Ÿ˜œ
Of course, with added by catch of diamond and golden trevally, queenfish etc
Steve ties all his own flies and his go- to fly is a Scotty Sparnon Sparwolf inspired crab pattern.
