Moruya and Tuross River
The rivers have been a little quite this week due to cold temperatures, wind and rain. The few who braved it did catch some fish though. Perch are still being caught under the Moruya bridge on soft plastics like the Zman grub and ProLure grub.
Down towards Preddy’s wharf has produced a few good flathead and bream fishing the sand flats and channel with baits and soft plastics.
The deep channel out the front of the boatshed in Tuross is seeing some good numbers of Jewfish in the 70 to 80 cm mark on live baits.
A few perch have also been caught on grub tail plastics targeting the upper sections of the river.
Rocks and Beaches
The squid are still thick off the rocks up and down the coast. The salmon have slowed down a little but there are still a few to be had off the beach and breakwall. Pillies or metal slices are the way to go if targeting the salmon. Beach worms have been working for the odd bream also.
Good table size flathead are being caught just off Moruya in roughly 25m of water.
We haven't had any reports of reds this week but if your lucky enough to get out over the long weekend they will certainly be worth targeting.
Bermagui has been fishing well for Albacore and Bluefin Tuna with reports of up to 80kg Bluefin landed. Josh from Tackle World Goulburn has just provided the following report for the mountains Wyangla Dam The Lachlan is still the place to fish. Jim Barlow reported good numbers of yellas off the trees near the fishing huts using black grubs and live yabbies. He said it was a little hit and miss but once you found them there were plenty. No cod reported this week although we had three crews from Sydney all fishing lures for cod from Hards to Spinnerbaits and caught nothing, but faired well on worms from the bank at night. Pejar Dam Trout, trout nothing but trout!! Brett Feld has been at it again landing a very nice rainbow using a small minnow style lure, the most popular being a Rapala 5 cm Original. Don Williams also reported a rainbow and a brown on fly using a natural fur fly, fishing near the cutting early in the morning he said there were good numbers of rising fish as dawn broke. Wollondilly River Kyle Lewis is the man, landing the fish of the week - a thumping 50+ cm redfin using a Jackson Quiet Beat. This time of year is the best time to land the bigger Redfin, you will find them in all parts of the river try using jigs to get past the smaller fish - the ideal lures are Jackson Quiet beats, Reaction bombs & jigging grubs.
