Cape York

Cape York is certainly one of the last wilderness areas northern Australia has to offer. The fishing can be sensational the species and options endless. Both eastern and western Cape York have special fisheries.


AFO can offer you different options to suit your needs, short land based accommodation trips to week or longer mothership excursions. 
Much of the Cape is very inaccessible by land so a mothership is a very good option if you wish to fish many of the untouched areas.

  Our mothership season onboard Eclipse FNQ Charters runs through our winter off season from June to August, travelling along the western coast of Cape York there are endless fishing opportunities.Rivers, flats, estuaries and endless beaches. Casting to sighted fish of numerous species is the draw card for many but far from all the area has to offer. Be offshore casting to schools of crashing pelagics, Some exploring the many rivers and inshore flats or casting amongst mangrove shorelines and shallow areas catching Barramundi, Threadfin Salmon, Mangrove Jack etc


Cape York boasts a huge range of fly rod target species, from the iconic Barramundi to Permit, Threadfin Salmon, Golden Trevally, Longtail Tuna, Mackeral, Queenfish and many more, often the species count is well in excess of 30 species for a trip. 

Whatever option suits you best, we’ll do our best to put you in the right spot.
