South West Freshwater Season Open

Written by Matt Gillett, 29th August 2014

Good winter rain in the South West suggests locals and visitors to the region will enjoy good quality freshwater fishing this season.

With almost 500,000 trout fingerlings stocked in South West waterways over winter, fish stocks will be high when the season opens on September 1.

Recfishwest Chief Executive Officer Dr Andrew Rowland said winter rains will see many fishers heading to local rivers and dams from September.

Written by Matt Gillett, 18th August 2014

Recfishwest is holding its Southern Community Tour in 2014. The Recfishwest SunSmart Fishing Clinics will be held in various locations throughout the South West of WA over the September/ October school holidays.

The Fishing Clinics are FREE to the community and is a great activity to get the kids out of the house during school holidays and catching some fish!

Just turn up on the day 30 minutes before start time and register! Maximum of 30 people per clinic (possibly more if using your own fishing gear). Children under 10 require a guardian at all times please.
