Tackle World Moruya - Fishing report

Moruya River

Whiting and bream are still on the chew throughout the river mainly on blood worms and nippers. Walking the flats around garland town on an incoming tide flicking surface lures has been producing some great results as well.

After the rain the bass have moved down around Kiora bridge with a couple of nice ones being landed.


Some nice jewfish have been coming in around the deeper edges around the four ways with some good sized whiting getting caught in shallows around the same area. Some nice size bream and whiting are coming in off the flats down around the mouth and further over towards potato point using blood worms or small diving hardbodies.

Rocks and Beaches

Plenty of salmon and tailor are coming in off the rockwall with pilchards being the best bait. The bream and whiting are still hanging around off the beaches with the pick of them being the windsock and Coila beaches - beach worms and pipies should get them biting.


Due to the inclement weather offshore we have no report for this week – best to stick to the estuaries.

For those of you who like to travel up the mountain the following report is provided from Josh from Tackle World Goulburn.

Wyangla Dam

To say its been tough is an understatement. The water levels have been dropping and the mixed weather patterns have also attributed. But that's all going to change this weekend with fine weather and less water movement it should bring the fish on. If your boat fishing try trolling in 5-6 metres and look for extended rocky points. I would be using Gangster 2.5oz mother froggers or Decnic 1oz tri blades while you can still get them. If your after yellas the trees are a must using black grubs on light jigs or Jackal Tn60s. If fishing from the bank - live yabbies are great on cod but worms will do a much better job for yellas. Spinning a shallow Stumpjumper will also reap rewards.

Pejar Dam

The mixed weather has not deterred the bass bite with good reports still coming in. Fishing the rock walls and weed beds close to the tower will bring good results. I would suggest using a Jackson quiet beats or Instinct light vibes to get to the larger fish. If you want to target Trout powerbait and worms are your best bet, I would try the St Stephens end this weekend.

Wollondilly River

Good reports of reddies in numbers in the lower reaches around Towrang although most of these fish are small there is the odd thumper amongst them. Gilly Brown caught a nice 40cm model below the Rossi wall using a red Celta, he also caught another 1/2 dozen smaller ones in the same area from his kayak. Spinning is by far the best way to catch Redfin. I would highly recommend Red Celtas and Strada Piccolas for best results.
