Looks like Ivanhoe. I fished there a few weeks ago and threw a line in where you're standing. Didn't get anything unfortunately.

I agree

Fri, 2006-08-04 22:04

Yeah, definitely Ivanhoe IMO. Took a bunch of school kids there once on a day trip (school fishing club) for the last day of school. Plenty of little barra and then lo and behold, one of the boys landed a 30lb fish on the upstream side of the crossing. Plenty of photo's and then we let the big girl go. Awesome!

Bit harsh.

Bit harsh there Ugly Stik. I used to enjoy seeing them, made it all seem like a great adventure. Nothing like seeing half a full grown cow float past your 12 foot tinnie, and then thinking hmmm, what beast ate the back half of it, and where is he now!!!

Ivanhoe Crossing

Sat, 2006-08-05 21:33

Ivanhoe Crossing I remember the place well,I was on holidays up there in 2001. I was casting little rubber leadhead lures and hooking up on small Barra on most casts.I was about half way out on the crossing when I slipped and fell into the river.All I could think about was Crocs as I swam back to the bank.I lost my hat,glasses and flick rod a Rex Hunt Combo.Thank my lucky stars that was all I lost,never been so frightened.

Ivanhoe

Sat, 2006-08-05 22:39

We were up in Kununnura for business about 3 years ago and had a couple of days off to fish and checked out Ivanhoe a few times. Didn't have any luck thou. One of the days we were there the local aboriginal kids were in there swimming around. Theres probably not a big threat of croc because the dam wall is not far upstream and with the crossing traffic I guess it would be unlikely. But I'm no local so have no real idea. Thing was that it was so crowded we didn't bother fish it properly. We headed to the banks along the Pentecost to some awesome ledges. Problem was it was 43 degrees in Kunnunurra and 45 in Wyndam and we were on the banks melting so didn't last too long. Another place I'd love to spend some time fishing and exploring.
