Land based Kakadu

Post by Metalmoe » Thu Nov 14, 2019 9:25 am

G’day all, first post.
On a trip through NT from Broome, and looking at options for landbased fishing through Kakadu and then from Cahills Crossing to Litchfield. Obviously not after anyone’s spots, just any advice, since this trip is without the boat.
Cheers

Cahills will be your best bet as well as a few creeks trekking down along the western side of the kakadu hwy that feed yellow water and its surrounding billabongs but generally these fish better in the runoff. (the eastern side of kakadu hwy is generally closed to fishing too except a few spots). Long walks with proper satellite maps showing better spots and a bit of dedication will get you into less thrashed locations that will hold better quality fish that haven't seen as many lures. Only a few billabongs like alligator have spots fishable from the bank a lot of the time the vegetation is too thick to get a cast in ... that is if they're not already closed.

We fished the upper south alligator in June and posted up a report. It was cr.p the rangers opened it once it was too low and we only got a few rats for the 10km lap. West alligator head is also a good area but they have already closed it until next year.

Google kakadu park access to see what is currently open ATM.
