About Middle Fly
Middle Fly District extends across the hills and floodplains of the Fly and Strickland Rivers. It covers the area surrounding Lake Murray and the Aramia, Bamu, Soari, Wamoi, Gama and
Guavi Rivers, which flow out to the Gulf of Papua. Hunting and fishing are more common food sources than agriculture in many parts of Middle Fly, where moderate incomes can be earned near Lake Murray and along the Fly River. Elsewhere in the district incomes are low. Some communities on the Fly River have also received compensation from the Ok Tedi Mine.
