The Blackwood River winds its way to the ocean in Augusta, and the lower reaches can be good for herring and whiting.
Farther upstream, it becomes a very good black bream river, with restocking supported by Recfishwest helping boost bream stocks in recent years.
Around Alexandra Bridge is a popular spot. The annual salmon run causes great excitement and there are a number of beaches either side of town that can fire when the schools are passing through. Hamelin Bay is a very popular spot for salmon, and you can drive a 4WD onto the beach. Local beaches are also good for herring and some produce jumbo tailor and mulloway quite regularly.
