Hooked up to one of the world’s best sportsfish – the mighty West Aussie salmon – on some of the world’s best beaches during the autumn salmon run – is one of the great WA fishing experiences for tens of thousands of recfishers.
Last year, we were gutted to have to postpone our inaugural Awesome Autumn of Salmon due to COVID-19. So, this autumn we and the recfishing community intend to celebrate this ever-popular species like never before through a three-month long free app-based fishing comp, the Salmon Slam 2021, and with the Albany Salmon Spectacular 2021 – a three-day salmon fishing event in Albany over the Easter weekend.
Run in partnership with Western Angler magazine, these activities are driven by our goal of protecting the fantastic, safe and accessible sportfishing WA salmon provides and our purpose to ensure great fishing experiences for all in the WA community, forever.
In addition, we have teamed up with Get Hooked sun-safe outdoor adventure wear to produce a limited edition ‘Official Salmon Chaser’ fishing shirt this year! By buying and wearing one, you can become a brand ambassador for salmon fishing in WA. These must-have quality shirts are likely to be in high demand and we’ve offered them to our members first – but they will be available to the wider community from Monday 1 March.
Every purchase helps fund the promotion of salmon fishing in the State and helps protect the abundance of salmon that show up every year ‘On the Run.’
The fantastic recfishing experiences salmon provides are made possible by the abundance of the WA salmon population and this underpins the social and economic value the species provides for the WA community. Recfishwest is therefore firmly committed to protecting that abundance and we believe the total annual catch for the species should be maintained at current levels.
