Fishing Peter Faust Dam with Luke Fallon Sport & Game Fishing
Experience the best barra fishing Faust has to offer on one of our fully guided fishing tours!
Luke has been barra guiding since the early 1990’s and is very adept at both saltwater barra fishing as well as impoundment fishing.
Growing up in Townsville, Peter Faust Dam was one of the first impoundments he ever fished and he has spent a lot of time on its waters in the 30 years since it was built!
You can find out more about the different charter options via our charter options page.
DAM FACTS: We’ve had some epic days fishing so far in 2022 and 2023 including several 30 fish days – most notably a 30 fish session at the end of December to see the year out in style!!

While not every day is such big numbers there is certainly the chance for BIG fish every day! Our guests biggest fish measured 117cm with quite a number in the high 100’s – 108, 109, 110 and 111cm!

So far 2024 has begun on a high note with Paul besting his PB with a 110cm fish on January 2nd!

Peter Faust Dam, AKA,


Peter Faust Dam is stocked annually with an estimated 20,000 barramundi fingerlings.
One of the best things about barra fishing at Peter Faust Dam is the consistency of big fish. On average, Luke guestimates that almost one in every 5 barra caught is over a metre. Already since 2021 we’ve notched up some stonkers with the biggest two 117cm, a couple of several over 110cm.
And its also an awesome dam for variety of techniques.
We can catch them jerk baiting in heavy timber and vibing, fishing weed edges as well as shallow points as well as on the surface (sight casting).
