Registrations are taken on the day. Session numbers are limited.
Fishing Clinic sessions are for children and families of all ages. Parents are expected to be present as supervisors for children under 12 for the duration and of course are encouraged to join in at our clinic sessions.
What to bring – Wear a hat!! Bring a drink and your fishing rod if you have one.
Participants are welcome to bring their own rods and reels; however, Recfishwest will supply 20 rigs, plus fishing tackle, bait, sunscreen and expertise.
Sessions start with a 20min info talk about who Recfishwest is and who we are to the WA community, as well as teaching good fishing practices, understanding of the environment and learning about fishing safety. The group goes fishing for about 70mins and there is a 20 min wrap-up chat, quick quiz and some prizes given away at the end.
Any pre-existing medical conditions or allergies to shellfish or fish should note this detail on the registration form below and, also speak to the instructor on the day who will allocate them a YELLOW wrist band. We use a combination of squid, prawns or fish, as well as burly during the fishing time. Instructors can easily set up a rig and hook for anyone wearing a YELLOW allergy bracelet so they have minimal or no contact with potential allergens.
Find out what’s happening across the state and stay up to date with recreational fishing closures.
