Fishermen and fishing enthusiasts travel from Adelaide to the far west coast of Australia every summer to catch salmon, tommyruff, snook and garfish. The far west coast of Australia has several hotspots for fishing, with Loch’s Well as the most famous for salmon. Loch’s Well is a private property of the Agars which do not mind that people fish in their area as long as it is kept clean, it is located in Elliston. Elliston also has an good camping and caravan facilities that serves as a base for those who will fish in Loch’s Well.

Venus Bay is another fishing place that is a large expanse of sea water and is a good place to catch whiting, flathead, trevally, sweep and salmon angling. Another good place for recreational fishermen is Talia Caves which is only 10 kilometers west of Venus Bay with a parking area that is only 400 meters away. The beach of Talia caves also produce groper and snapper. However, the the south eastern wind may make angling difficult here.

Streaky Bay and Smoky Bay are other big names for fishermen. The bays are abundant in salmon, snapper and flathead among several other species of fish. Local businessmen in Streaky Bay, which a major township, hold a snapper fishing contest every year for the largest snapper caught.

Another magnificent place for fishermen is Scotts Bay. It cannot found on the map but can be reached by taking the turn-off 4 kilometers before Fowlers Bay Township.
