Don’t forget the fishing rods when visiting our region. Visit in autumn when schools of Australian Salmon are on their migratory spawning run along the south coast for sport fishing at its best. Safe sheltered rock fishing is available in the channel near the Windy Harbour boat ramp or bring your surf rods to fish along miles of deserted beaches in D’Entrecasteaux National Park. 2WD access can be found at Windy Harbour, Cathedral Beach, Salmon Beach and Mandalay Beach, all other beaches require 4WD access. https://parks.dpaw.wa.gov.au/park/dentrecasteaux
Trout have been stocked in the waterways around Pemberton for decades now, wander along the streams and rivers with your rod or try your hand at fly fishing. Please note Freshwater Angling Licenses are required.
