Our Peter Faust Dam barra charters have been extremely popular. The dam is best known for its consistency of big fish and fish over the metre mark. Already in 2021 our Peter Faust results show that on average 1 in 4 fish are over the metre mark!
A full day charter is generally in excess of 8 hours on the water and sometimes will be split into two sessions. Start and end times will vary according to the time of year and the time the sun rises or sets on the dam.
Full day trips are $1,000 for a maximum of two guests/anglers. A third angler can be added for an additional cost of $500.
Luke has been guiding for barramundi since the 1990’s. Growing up in nearby Townsville, Peter Faust Dam was one of the first impoundments that he ever fished and he’s spend many years fishing and exploring the dam since.
Fishing is permitted at Monduran Dam via SIP permits from Fisheries Queensland which can be purchased online here.
Faust is estimated to be stocked annually with approximately 20,000 barra fingerlings. The Dam is managed by the Whitsunday Council and Sunwater.
Peter Faust Dam is located 20 minutes outside of Proserpine in North Queensland. The airport at Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast Airport) is also the main gateway to the Whitsundays with flights daily via Brisbane.
Faust is also a short less-than 3hr drive from Townsville.
Accommodation options are plentiful both at the dam and nearby in Proserpine. Luke Fallon Sport & Game Fishing is offering Peter Faust Dam barra charters regularly throughout the year. If you are interested in joining our next Peter Faust Dam Tour get in touch or follow the ‘events’ on our FB page for the next schedule.
Monduran is a dam and therefore considered sheltered waters and weather related cancellations are most unlikely. However, in the event weather conditions make it unsafe to fish, as determined by Luke – ie. storm activity, flooding rain etc – the charter will be rescheduled to a mutually suitable date, or all charter fees paid refunded.
In the event of a weather related charter cancellation, Luke Fallon Sport Fishing is not responsible for any ancillary costs/damages.
