Perth: Fishing

Wonderful weather, pristine beaches and an easy-going character

Perth Fishing

Perth is blessed with some of the best beaches in the world. The fishing from these beaches is excellent and is available all the year round. Species likely to be encountered when beach fishing include skipjack trevally, tailor, herring, tarwhine, mullet, mulloway, flathead, small sharks, pike, whiting and salmon. Approximately an hour's drive from Perth are the beaches of San Remo, Madora, and Singleton. These popular beaches provide excellent fishing for herring, tailor, whiting and mulloway. The mulloway 'run' occurs in early January when the nights are balmy and it is a popular time for family fishing trips.
