Your Regional Fishing Events for 2017

 Western Australia is home to the best and most diverse fishing experiences in Australia. From the far south east coast to the top of the Kimberley, many of WA’s regional coastal towns along the way thrive on recreational fishing.

Fishing Reports for App

Every year thousands of Western Australians hit the road to get off the beaten track and visit some of these coastal getaways. Often visitors have fishing in mind but may not be aware that there are a whole host of fishing events throughout the year welcoming locals and visitors alike.


Many regional centres have fishing clubs, most of which host some great events and are the hub of the community. These fishing events generally occur in the form of a competition and when applicable entry fees are very affordable with quality prizes always on offer.

Fishing competitions present an opportunity to enjoy Western Australia’s safe, accessible and sustainable fishing experiences while giving you the chance to experience something different, meet some new people along the way and fish in locations you may not have before. They are open for your enjoyment all across WA, so familiarise yourself with fishing events close to you or your holiday destination, and start planning your next trip.
