In the Swan and Canning rivers you’ll find good fishing year-round, but particularly in Summer when the water warms up.
Both rivers hold plenty of black bream to 45cm and some good spots to try for them include the Canning Bridge, Narrows Bridge, Causeway, Burswood and Maylands. In Winter, the jetties in the lower reaches can hold a lot of bream. Tailor numbers have been very good in recent years, especially around Nedlands, Applecross and Claremont.Crabbing is very popular in summer, from the Causeway downstream. Hopefully prawning makes a comeback soon thanks to the restocking program underway.
