LAKE­FIELD is the place to be to hook a few barra. There’s no spe­cial se­cret to catch­ing them up there but per­sis­tence . Cast any­where amongst snags to en­tice a strike. Lake­field is only a short trek past Laura so you can re­fuel your ve­hi­cle there. Camp­ing is avail­able but be sure to pre-book and pay for your per­mit on the Qld Na­tional Parks web­site. Brans­fords Guide to Fish­ing from Cairns to the Cape is also a great read about the pop­u­lar na­tional park.
