Flathead have been caught this week targeting some of the more shallow sections of the river. Above the hospital rocks and also in the backwaters near Preddy’s wharf has produced on the 4" pumpkinseed gulp.
The bream have been a little quiet, but a few have been tempted with pillie cubes in the channel along the rockwall at Preddy’s wharf.
Perch are still hitting the surface late at night around the bridge. The Sugarpen 70f has been working well.
The water is a little dirty after the rain, but the fishing is still good particularly on a run in tide.
Some large salmon are moving around the front of the river mouth and they are great fun on light bream and whiting outfits.
Whiting and bream are also being caught down the front on Daiwa double clutch 60mm and also on live nippers.
Some good jewfish and flathead have been caught this week in the deep channel out the front of the boatshed on live bait and fuse pulse 95mm vibes.
Rocks and Beaches
Salmon and bream have been caught at Bingi beach this week on pillies.
Coila and Congo both have large gutters that are holding some good salmon also.
Off the rocks at Tomakin has been producing squid and blue Groper.
The break wall in Moruya is seeing some good salmon and tailor sessions using pillies and gang hook rigs - just remember - pick your tide right .
For those of you who also like to keep up to date with what’s happening up the mountain, Josh from Tackle World Goulburn has the following report.
Fishing has been very much the right place at the right time. The Abercrombie is currently not worth fishing. Gavin McCallum reported zero fish for two solid days fishing for cod day and night up the Abercrombie. The Lachlan has faired much better. Most fish are well up the river in the shallower water. John Bibic reported 15 yellas on grubs and yabbies in the trees no more than 3 metres of water. Finding fish this weekend could be a challenge - stick to the trees and work yabbies and black grubs for yellas. Cod - I would suggest stay in the structure and use some bigger baits like cheese balls or big yabbies.
Fishing reports have been nothing but fantastic. Laurie Reed has been catching both trout and bass on worms from the bank, over five fish in a few days. At present there has been good surface feeding early in the morning. I would suggest getting out the fly rod and giving it a go - try using a Glowbug or Mrs Simpson. Bait fishing with worms from the bank has been very successful so stick to it.
Redfin on mass. A good report of fish schooled up in the lower parts of the river - most fish are being caught on grubs & blades. This time of year you will find most of the fish schooled in the warmer water. Once you find them they are easy targets - drop a jig into them and a couple of quick movements and hold on. This weekend try fishing the edges using a soft plastic or blade to get some depth. Once you catch one stay in that area.
Tight lines my friends and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing … “
