Fishing at Salmon Holes, Albany, Western Australia

Fishing at Salmon Holes in Albany - April 2015

Just after Easter 2015 we travelled to Albany to fish for salmon at the Salmon Holes.  We stayed in our caravan at Panorama Van Park ($35 per night) which was not too flash but adequate and very close to the fishing.

As you can see from the photographs above and below there were many fishing.  People were polite and there were not any issues about lines crossing, tangling etc. Lots of little kids were catching big fish.  I think everyone was enjoying the fact that fish were there to be caught – a rare experience for a lot of fisherpeople!

Fish were caught with a hook and sinker and also some were using lures.  Some anglers used triple hooks but I didn’t find that necessary.  There were no snags or seaweed to foul the hook. Many, many big fish were caught and enjoyed with lots of joyous moments.

It was much safer to surf fish off the beach as the Salmon Holes are notorious for lives lost.  Some were fishing off the rocks but I never saw any of them get a fish.

We used mullies (blue fish bait) with a hook and heavy sinker.  You did not have to cast out very far to be able to get a fish.  I was using a surf rod but many only had normal sized rods and they caught fish as well.

It was a great experience being part of the Salmon Run in Albany over Easter.
