Moruya and Tuross River
The fishing has slowed down a little in the rivers this week, but a few good fish are still kicking around. Jewfish are coming out of Tuross in the deeper channels on live baits, also further upstream on 100mm squidgie wrigglers.
Perch and bream are hanging around the oyster racks in Tuross with 80mm bloodworm wrigglers and Atomic crank baits working best.
Some nice perch are also being caught in Moruya around the bridge, again using 80mm bloodworm wrigglers.
Flathead have been caught on the sand flats down stream near Preddy’s wharf on gulp swimming mullet and also pillies.
Rocks and Beaches
The swell has been high the last few days and it's turned the Salmon on the bite. Moruya breakwall has been fishing well for Salmon and Tailor using pillies and metal slices.
Off the rocks at Shelly’s beach and Bingi is fishing good for squid with the most popular colour jigs being orange and pink this week.
Good numbers of Albacore and Bluefin are out wide at the moment with reports of anglers trolling teasers and skirts to get hooked up.
Some Snapper, Mowie and Flathead are coming in just off Moruya in roughly 50m of water. Drifting windsock beach has produced good numbers of Flathead also. Josh, from Tackle World Goulburn has the following freshwater report for you. Wyangla Dam
Fantastic weather, but limited fish. Winter fishing can be tough but changing your tactics is all that's needed. Fishing the trees with worms, yabbies and grubs are by far the best ways to get the fish to bite - the slower you move your baits the better. If you’re off the bank, worms are by far the best bait - try putting some of the above into practice this weekend.
Pejar is finally getting back to where it used to be. More good catches this week mainly on Powerbait. Laurie Reed kindly bought us in two very nice rainbows unfortunately he took them home with him. Try using a suspending rig with powerbait or if your more into lures using a Rapala original or Tassie devil is a great way to spend a few hours casting or trolling.
Rivers and streams are closed at this time of year due to Trout season. This also means no fishing for redfin. However you can fish impoundments and backed-up water including Marsen weir, Mulwarree Ponds weir, Pejar dam etc. You just cannot fish below the dam or weir in the running water until the October Long Weekend.
Tight Lines my friends and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing …”
