Where to fish in Perth? Best fishing jetties, beaches and bridges to catch fish in Perth, WA

Where are the best places to catch fish in Perth? What fish can I catch in Perth?  

Narrows Bridge is right next to the city centre and has produced many massive mulloway over the years, but more likely it will offer tailor and black bream.  There are several small jetties in the river that can produce similar species, as some of the more popular ones are at Claremont, Applecross, Point Walter and Rocky Bay.

As you head up the river towards Maylands, black bream take over and they can be found around the pylons of just about every jetty and bridge.

The E-Shed Wharf is a noted mulloway spot, while the North and South moles offer a wide range of species, including herring, skippy and tailor.

The rockwalls at spots like Mindarie and Hillarys can be productive for similar species, while some good fish also come from inside the marinas.  Cockburn Sound also has jetties that are fun to fish, like the one at Palm Beach.

Around Mandurah, the old and new traffic bridges, and the Dawesville cut, can be good for herring, tailor and whiting.  Try in the canals for black bream.
