Port Esperance is a popular fishing sport, and arguably the best location in the Channel due to the wide variety of fish you can catch. If you have a boat, fihing in the bay is great where you can also fish around the islands in the area for flathead, salmon and barracouta. However, if you don’t have a boat Dover jetty and in front of the Esperance Camp on the river is a great spot to throw in a line. The Esperance River contains Atlantic salmon, sea-run trout and bream so with the right setup, time and patience you should be lucky enough to catch a nice fish from Dover Jetty. Further up-river bream and sea-run trout are popular choices with local fishermen, and in early to mid December sea-run trout can be seen in the shallows charging at schools of whitebait.
