Fishers from across the state will flock to Elliston, as the 29th Australian Salmon Fishing Championship gets underway next month.

The annual event is a major drawcard for the region, with Burra resident Willie Dawson winning the championship last year with an over 5 kilogram salmon caught at Talia.

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

The competition starts on June 1, and runs through until August 31.
