If you're looking for great fishing and top food, in a very remote spot. Well this is it. I had 4 great days at the lodge. The trip starts with a short flight from Darwin. Picked up from the dirt runway and back to the lodge for a beer. The rooms and amenities are adequate. The view from the lodge is crash hot. To say that the food is impressive and generous, would be an under statement. The owners and guides are very friendly. Apart from the lodge boats I only spotted 3 other boats. I pointed this out to David. He jokingly replied, yes it gets busy up here some times. The boats are sturdy and comfortable. There are plenty of species on offer here. They all fight hard and will test your gear. Smashed up lures and trebles, are to be expected. I took my own rods and reels, you don't have to.(Check with the airline if you are taking your gear,restrictions apply) Accurate casting and listening to the guides, is an advantage. The guides are patient and offer an easy style of coaching, if required.
The scenery will blow you away. Adventure is abundant. I have fished some great spots in NT and QLD. Done the 2hrs each way by 4 wheel drive and live aboard on a mother ship. They are all good in their own way. There is just something very special about staying at Clearwater Lodge. You maximise your fishing and partying time. There is a score board near the bar, to tally up your catch each day. A bit of friendly rivalry makes it more fun. Get up there and get your name on it!
I look forward to my next visit to the Lodge. Cheers. Dave A
