Moruya and Tuross River
The Moruya bridge area has been seeing some good surface action. The sugarpen 70f walk the dog style lure has been working a treat on the perch.
Further down stream at the hole in the wall, a local diver reports good numbers of bream and luderick hanging around the entrance.
All the oyster racks throughout the Tuross system are still fishing well for bream and perch, mainly on soft plastics such as Zman Motoroil grubs. A few have also been enticed on worms and fresh nippers.
A lot of very average size flathead are being caught around the four-ways in Tuross using the green Juro firebait soft plastic loaded with S-factor scent.
Rocks and Beaches
South Head and Congo are both fishing well off the rocks for squid at the moment.
Drummer and bream are coming in off the rocks at Bingi using cunji. There have also been some nice lobsters around the headlands.
Coila, Windsock beach and the breakwall have been a little quiet this week. Early morning and late afternoon have been the key times for salmon and tailor, pillies being the bait of choice.
The cuttlefish are starting to move in and so are the snapper. Some sizeable reds have been caught just off Moruya in 5 to 12 metres of water using cuttlefish and fresh squid as bait. The 5 inch Gulp jerkshad has also proven to be deadly around the bombies at Pedro point. There are still plenty of flathead out there and also the odd mowie. And from Josh at Tackle World Goulburn - this weeks fresh water fishing report Wyangla Dam Couple of reports this week from the main basin. Will Zyla reported good numbers of yellas off the end of three tree island using worms & yabbies, while his mate John worked the trees at the mouth of the Abercrombie using black grubs for one cod and six yellas. Both reported next to nothing caught on lures being trolled or cast. This time of year its very much bait fishing for the best results as the fish are not overly active, fish in no more than 5 metres and work the structure. Pejar Dam Trout are still the target fish. Garry Von Gisbon reported two nice rainbows from the eastern picnic point both on fly over the weed using a hammels killer. Another nice rainbow caught below the church by John St Clair using lime twist powerbait. If your heading out there Powerbait and worms have been the most reliable bait - if your a lure fisherman Tassie Devils are a must in the deeper water. Wollondilly River With the river now closed reports are few and far between. Keep in mind you can always fish above the Weirs at Marsden & Mulwarree Ponds these areas are open all year round, just don't fish below them in the running water till October long weekend when they reopen. If you want to chase a few this weekend try using some jigs like Jackson reaction bombs or Quiet beats these will bring on the bigger fish.
Tight Lines my friends and remember "every day's a good day for fishing ... "
