Cape York Fishing - Sport Fishing Australia

Cape York Rod and Rifle Safaris operates sportfishing tours in and around the very tip of Cape York Peninsula in Queensland Australia. Fishing Cape York is an experience not to be missed by the angler who is looking for the ultimate sport fishing challenge.

Cape York fishing is among the best in the world. Our company  has been operating personal sportfishing and hunting safaris on wild, remote Cape York Peninsula for the past 15 years.  You'll catch everything from Barramundi to Bluefin Tuna whether you're fly fishing, trolling or bait casting.

We specialise in camp-outs in remote parts of the Cape

We are based in Bamaga, Cape York, 30 kms from the northernmost tip of Australia, and less than 10 kms to either Seisia or Jacky-Jacky boat ramp and just 100 kms from the renowned Skardon River.  We not only fish all the rivers, swamps and lagoons that drain into these systems, but also the islands that surround Cape York itself and Torres Strait. We also fish the coral bommies and vast reefs that are part of the Great Barrier Reef off the Cape York coast.

All the superstars are here including Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Saratoga, Fingermark, Salmon (Threadfin & Blue), Black Jew, Queenfish, Trevally (GT's, Golden, etc), Tuna (Macks & Bluefin), Mackerel (Spanish, Spotted & Shark), Queensland Groper, Estuary Cod, Coral Trout, Spangled Emperor, Nannygai, Javelin Fish, Coal Grunter, etc, etc, etc.



After 10 years I've got a pretty good idea of where and when they're biting - but with upwards of 30 species to choose from and bottom conditions varying from reef to sand to rock to mud and everything in between I need as much help as I can get.

I use Humminbird because, in my opinion, they give the best results ( I can even see the anchor going down!) and are really reliable - really important for operations like us in remote areas.
