Australian Salmon, Winter Estuary Excitement.


If there is one fish species that can help ease the winter blues, it would have to be the impressive Australian salmon. Locally known as either the cocky salmon or black back salmon, these great sport fish often remain in all the major estuary systems till the first big floods, and if the last few years are any indication, that means July or August. It doesn't matter how you plan to tackle salmon, with either bait, lure or fly, they are ready biters, sensational fighters, as well as being an acceptable, if not first class table fish.

Swan River Report 1/1/2013

The weather has finally given me the motivation to go for a fish; Trev was pretty keen to give the bream a go as well, so we headed off to the Swan River to give them a go. We arrived there around 11.30 this morning to a slight breeze and soon had the boat on the water.

We were told about some possible hot spots from a couple of the comp gurus and headed straight there, it only took a couple of casts to get the first one in the boat as there were plenty of fish in this area.
After a bit of fun we went down to the cut and had a look, didn't see any in the shallows so we decided to head upstream as far as we could go, just for a look.
Didn't see one fish up there so it was back down to the deep water where all the fish seemed to be.
Had a great day with my boy, I think we could get used to this “bream’ in”.
