There are dozens if not hundreds of great fishing spots along the Swan and Canning Rivers. Anywhere you find a jetty or bridge you'll probably get a bite. Heading upstream as far as Midland can also get results if you are targetting bream...the more snags, the more bites. Be prepared to lose tackle! The Swan River has extensive bike/footpaths from which you can access fishing spots. I have sometimes walked these areas and travelling light you can cover quite a few kms flicking lures or bait as you go. Or just sit and chill out watching the boats go by as you soak a prawn. The sandbar at Point Walter can be productive using lures and targetting flathead. Ive also had good results for flathead, flounder and tailor at Chidley Point. If its raining you can fish comfortably under the Narrows Bridge. You get a great view of the city from there too :)

If saltwater fishing, jetties along the coast arent that plentiful. There are marinas such as Hillarys or Mindarie, a few groynes here and there along the coast and of course the wharfs and groynes at Fremantle. Beach/surf fishing is popular along the entire coast particularly at sunset.

Have a look through these listings on fishing locations..you might find something that appeals:

Not for recreational fishing. It is required for freshwater fishing in the southwest unless on private property. Also for species such as lobster, marron etc.

Although a fishing license isn't required there are size limits for some species, so PLEASE have a look at them and comply. Fines are issued for breeches and may affect your future travel to our country.
