Moruya and Tuross River
Both Snake flat and the four-ways in Tuross have been holding some nice winter Whiting. Squirt worms have been working well at the moment
Perch are being caught further up stream on most snags using both Zman grubs and Atomic cranks.
Moruya river bridge area is still fishing well for Perch using surface lures like Sammy 65s and Sugarpen 70fs.
The hole in the wall is producing a few bream and leather jacket on mullet fillet. The weedy flats adjacent are also holding some nice bream and the odd flathead.
Rocks and Beaches
Drummer are coming in thick off One Tree Point using cunji and peeled prawns as bait.
Coila beach and Moruya breakwall are both good areas if targeting Salmon and Tailor.
Off the rocks at Bingi has been producing good numbers of squid.
The Bluefin are moving around out wide with a Batemans bay local landing a massive 168kg monster.
Some snapper and mowies have reportedly been caught in roughly 25m of water just off Moruya. In a little closer is seeing anglers catch a great feed of Flathead also.
Josh from Tackle World Goulburn has supplied us with the following freshwater report.
The cold has set in and with it slower fishing. Only one report this week from James Henry landing three nice yellas and two carp from the bank at Websters using worms. Its much harder catching fish at this time of year - the slower you can move things the better. Try fishing from the bank near trees or rocky areas using bait like worms or yabbies. If lures are more to your liking, Black grubs slow jigged will do the job.
By far the best Trout season we have seen since the dam refilled in 2009. Jarod McDougall & Dean Edwards both reported good catches this week using powerbait and worms. All the fish have been of good size and very healthy although its cold its the best time to fish the dam for trout. Powerbait is by far the best performer on the bait fishing stakes. The lure guys are doing okay on Tassie Devils, but there's a lot of casting between fish. Trolling the banks with a Rapala glassy shad may serve you much better.
With most parts of the river closed until October long weekend reports have been very limited. Keep in mind you can still fish the backed up water at Marsden Weir and Mulwarree Ponds off Braidwood Rd - these areas are open to fishing 12 months of the year. I would suggest using some Jackson Quiet Beats or Rapala sinking minnows at this time of year to get a little deeper and find the bigger Redfin in the structure.
Have a great weekend everyone and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing …”
