Moruya and Tuross River
The fishing in Moruya river has slowed down alot this week, but anglers are still having good fun catching tailor that are hanging around towards the front of the system. Quarry wharf and Preddy’s wharf are both good areas to target land based. The fish are not to fussy at the moment taking most baits and lures.
Tomakin river has produced some nice flathead using Daiwa double clutch hardbodied lures.
Tuross river is still holding good numbers of whiting. Squirt worms seem to be the key to success at this time of the year.
Bream and perch in the racks. Some nice size fish are being caught in the oyster leases spread throughout Tuross. ProLure grubs with a generous amount of Sfactor applied is working well.
Rocks and Beaches
Drummer are coming in off the rocks up and down the coast on Cunji, peeled prawns and crabs. Congratulations to Tackle World VIP member Max for landing a very nice Mowie from the rocks at Malua bay.
Windsock beach is fishing well for salmon with some good size fish landed this week. The majority of anglers have been using pillies for bait. Spinning metal slugs from the beach has also been very effective.
Lobster and abalone is on the menu for the lucky divers with reports of good numbers at the moment. Cray pots have also been catching a few.
When the weather has permitted, offshore anglers have been catching good bags of flathead along the edges of reefs and also out the front of Windsock.
Baracoota are pretty thick at the moment with some finding it hard to get away from them.
Nice reds are being caught around the Potato Point area drifting pillie cubes down a burley trail and also on the gulp 5 inch swimming mullet in glow, chartreuse and nuclear chicken colours.

Reports were very thin on this week due to the wind over the weekend. Jeff Hermin spent the weekend up the Abercrombie working the trees and only landed two yellas and one carp using Tn60 Jackles. Black grubs and worms will be your best bet this weekend - work the trees and red banks. The Grabine Fishing Comp is on this weekend, so there will be plenty of people out there to swap stories with!
Grabine Freshwater Fishing Tournament 25-27th August
I seen a number of boats & kayaks on the dam Sunday morning, but didn't receive any reports of catches. I would suggest fishing the edges with Rapala originals and Atomic shad for the best results on the trout. It won’t be long now as the water starts to warm, we should see a few bass start to show up - bring on summer!!
Pejar Trout Classic 15th October
Good reddie numbers above the Weir at Mulwarree Ponds. Joel Thompson from Dapto was back over the weekend using a Entice Hybrid blades landing a fish of 40cm. He said all the fish off the deep edges allowing your blade to hit the bottom as work it back slowly worked a treat.
Tight lines my friends and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing … “
