I fished the Denmark river for about 2 hours on the weekend.  I used hardbodies and soft plastics.  I managed to get one hit with no hook up and one hook up from a bream that ran me into the snags and busted me off. Grrr

If you've got a small tinny of kayak head up the Hay river.  Not sure what the rains are like down there at the moment.  If they've had rain try out in the inlet more or hay river mouth, if no rain, try up river a bit more.  You will notice when you cross the Hay river heading to Albany theres a small turnoff on the left, its a nice little spot for a landbased bash with some fishy snags under and near the bridge.

Most of the beaches should still hold resident salmon this time of year too, well worth a shot.

That sounds about right.  I used 2kg with 3.7kg leader.  When I got busted off I was using 2kg leader.
