Fishing in WA

Western Australia has some of the best fishing on the Planet!

From the sweeping white sandy beaches of the South Coast to the great Salmon run that takes place each year through the South West to Game fishing to be had off Carnarvon, Exmouth and Broome, you name it – WA has it! You can fish for freshwater trout in our South West waterways, free dive for rock lobster in shallow coastal waters and pop for whiting in our Estuaries.

Recfishwest, along with the guys that brought you Western Australian Fishing Magazine, have put together a website ( with a bit in it for all fishers.

You’ll find ‘How To’ tutorial video’s on how to catch, how to cook, how to fillet and tie knots. You can read about your dream fishing destination and pick up plenty of tips like rod and reel maintenance, what to look for when checking your boat trailer and the best way to catch squid and all of WA’s favourite species.

Recfishwest’s weekly State-wide Fishing Reports can be found on I Love Fishing which will point you in the right direction when deciding where to fish this weekend!
