Time Running Out to Take Part in Salmon Fishing Championships

There is just over one month remaining for fishers to make their way to Elliston to take part in this year's Australian Salmon Fishing Championships.



The 29th instalment of the annual event is still proving to be quite a drawcard for the region, with plenty of anglers making their way to the EP.

$2,000 is on offer for the heaviest salmon caught during the 2022 competition, with $750 for the second heaviest.

Burra resident Willie Dawson took out the win last year with an over 5 kilogram salmon caught at Talia.

The competition runs through until August 31.
