Denmark fishing

Hey guys, this weekend im heading down to denmark.

I'm hoping to get some fishing in, but i have no clue as to what i should be after or of any spots, beach or river.

I have a 12ft surf rod and a 7ft ugly stick, sorry i cant be more specific, dont have the gear on me right now!

If anyone is able to share some spots in denmark or just give some gerneral advice would be awesome!


cheers guys

Start with Lights Beach, if wind is westerly use waterfall beach. No 4x4 needed.

Hi mate,i lived in denmark

Hi mate,

i lived in denmark when i was younger, i wont go into too much detail but we used to get plenty of decent salmon out at parry's beach on ganged mullies (25kms west of denmark) and black bream in the hay river on prawns(15kms east of denmark). used to be plenty of king george whiting and flathead in wilson inlet but not sure what it's like these days. plenty of nice beaches down there especially if you have a decent 4wd (some good 4x4 tracks to get to them). you wont catch much in the denmark river. if all else fails there's a rainbow trout farm 15kms out scotsdale road

maybe grab a map from the tourist centre when you get there

good luck

Steve, thanks for the info, will definetly come in handy! My sister isnt too keen on fishing, but shes never felt a fish fight on the line, so maybe ill have to drag her down to the trout farm haha.

Mad Phil's your man

I've been lucky enough to fish with "Mad Phil", Phil Jagger down in Denmark last year.  He's been a writer, angling film maker and contributor for many publications for years and he's now a "Danish citizen".

Took us down a river or two and turned a bunch of amatuers into a bunch of pros in just hours.  Check Google maybe for his posts, his local knowledge and respect for the area is amazing.
