Fishing in Daly River

The Daly River mouth region consists of the coastline to the boundary of Mabaluk land within the Daly River/Port Keats Aboriginal Land Trust.

The Daly River features a broad range of rich and diverse habitats supporting various species including:

  • migratory birds
  • native marsupials
  • reptiles
  • fish.

The Traditional Owners of the middle reaches of the Daly River and the surrounding area are the Malak Malak people.

You must respect the cultural importance of these waters to the Malak Malak people.

From time to time, Aboriginal cultural ceremonies take place. This may mean a particular area is temporarily closed to access.

Access to waters

Recreational fishers, fishing tour operators and commercial fishers do not need permits to access waters in the Daly River and Daly River mouth regions.

Possession limits apply.

The area between Moon Billabong Outlet to Anson Bay is closed from 1 October to 31 January.
