More About the Northern Territory Runoff

The NT Runoff occurs at the end of the wet season when the water on the flood plains starts receding bringing all sorts of Barramundi food such as frogs tadpoles and small fish etc and the Barramundi congregate at hot run off locations for what is probably the easiest feed they are going to get all year. Timing of the Runoff does depend on the weather but as a general rule the months of March through to Mid May is Run Off time.

NT fishing locations like Shady Camp, South Alligator River, East Alligator River and the Daly River are all great Runoff Barramundi fishing locations. During the Runoff, these rivers produce some great Barramundi fishing with reports of trophy Barramundi being a daily occurrence.
