Shady Camp is one of those Top End Fishing locations that is unique to the NT. Not only do you have the opportunity to fish a Freshwater Billabong, but also a Saltwater River on the right tides and season. Shady Camp is a Mecca for both fishing and wildlife.
Shady Camp Billabong is located above the Shady Camp Barrage, holding barra that has been feeding off the flats from the wet season and runoff. It also supports are large amount of wildlife, including crocodiles, jabirus and the odd buffalo. We offer charters for up to 4 passengers per boat and able to cater for larger groups.
Shady Camp Fishing Charters run year round with each season bringing a different style of fishing. The wet and runoff are famous for chasing metre barra. During the Dry Season we target smaller barra in the billabong either casting or trolling. Not only target barra, saratoga are also targeted by anglers which are caught during the Dry season. The Buildup prior to the Wet sees the action fire up again. The big barra come back into the rivers to breed and we also see threadfin salmon arrive for anglers.
All our barra charters are out of Darwin. You will be picked up from your accommodation in an accredited air-conditioned 4WD at approximately 5:o0am. You will have an opportunity to grab some breakfast on the way out at one of the roadhouses along the way.
