Opens up with River Escapes to many kilometres of river; a great way to fish the Mitta in their Fly Fishing Raft Tour.
Large gravel bars can be explored on foot by exiting the raft. Depending on the season and flow conditions, we can be rafting the Mitta as early as trout season opening. Reliable hatches usually begin by early October and large terrestrials like grasshoppers begin to make an appearance as summer rolls around.
The elusive platypus is regularly encountered, providing a welcome distraction for both fisherman or even a non-fishing partner. We offer this trip at a fixed rate for either one or two people per day.
It can also be combined with a fantastic overnight camping experience, allowing you to be delivered to your overnight camp by raft and continue your drift downstream the next day.
