Being very TIC here, however I know Duck Creek here in Sydney at Granville. It flows into the Parramatta River and mate its one huge open chemical cocktail sewer. I reackon "if" anyone was game to fish it, let alone go near it, they would end up with a green afro!

This is new to me. We were up there fishing on the Albert River last year, but I heard no mention of Duck Creek. Where exactly is it?

Your not talking about the the upper levels of the Gregory are you?

Hi Rob,

The only Duck Creek that I can find up that way is actually north of Karumba and is an arm of a Spring Creek. According to the North Australian Fish Finder book it is not possible to get in to it by land, you have to come in from the sea and the closest launch is actually Karumba. So you have 45nm to travel by sea before you even get there. Apparently the stations up there that used to allow access in to some of the rivers for fishermen no longer do since they were bought by one of the big pastoral companies.

Is that the one you were thinking of? I can't find anything near Burketown.
