Our Australian Salmon Fishing Championship is held annually on the West Coast of the Eyre Peninsula during the months of June, July, and August. We welcome all keen fisherman and fisherwomen to the area to have their chance at winning prize money for heaviest fish $1500, second heaviest fish $500 and $300 fortnightly for a mystery weight. It is $10 to enter the competition and you must purchase your tickets before you fish from either The Elliston Information Centre, Elliston Hotel, Elliston Waterloo Bay Caravan Park, Elliston Caravan Park or Sheringa Roadhouse. On your ticket it will state the rules of the competition. The Salmon must be caught with hook and line from the shore between Mount Camel Beach and Sheringa Beach, Eyre Peninsula. We have some of the most reliable fishing spots to catch Australian Salmon in our local area around Elliston and look forward to not only welcoming newcomers but our loyal entrants. This year our weigh-in station will be at the Elliston Caravan Park. We ask that everyone please be respectful and help keep our beaches clean. Happy and safe fishing!
