Salmon are not only highly accessible and plentiful off our coastline – but all ages and abilities can catch them, such as Josh Mitchell who caught this beauty in bunker Bay at five-years-old!

The biggest and best salmon fishing experiences in the country!

Due to their sheer abundance, WA salmon are the biggest in Australia growing up to nearly a metre-long. Every year as large salmon schools migrate up the coast, thousands of West Aussie mums, dads and mates flock to the South and South-west to hook up to one of these iconic southern sportfish on some of the world’s best beaches.

The salmon run is addictive. It’s unmatched and that’s why the Salmon Slam is the biggest land-based fishing competition in Australia!

Recfishwest CEO Dr Andrew Rowland said, “Salmon fishing off WA’s spectacular beaches is part of West Aussie culture generating $331 million a year for the WA economy every year. The experience of being hooked up to an acrobatic hard-fishing salmon is simply priceless though!

“It’s something we at Recfishwest passionately believe deserves to be celebrated with the salmon abundance that underpins these magic fishing experiences protected forever”

That’s why we’re proud to launch this year’s Awesome Autumn of Salmon, proudly supported by Shimano and Western Angler.

It’s not only very easy to catch a salmon off WA’s pristine southern beaches as Jane Ma experienced in 2022 – just catching one and entering the photo into the Salmon Slam 2023 app could snag you some impressive prizes!
