Moruya Tackle World Fishing report

Moruya River The warm weather lately has really turned the fish on the bite in Moruya river. Whiting are starting to be seen more frequently on the sand flats opposite Preddy’s wharf and a few are taking a liking to surface lures like Jackson poppers and EBI panic. Flathead are being caught in the same area but targeting the drop offs to the channel using soft plastics and live poddy mullet. Bream are hanging around the backwaters and the hole in the wall. Prawns and beach worms are working great! Tuross river Flathead are everywhere in Tuross at the moment. Both Squidgies and Gulp have worked extremely well lately in 100 mm and 4". Bream are hitting the surface in the racks early of the morning. The Prolure pink paddle grub rigged on a size 2 Shinto worm hook is very effective this time of the year. Whiting are being caught around the Four-ways and also down the front at the boat ramp flats. Beach worms and nippers are working best. Rocks and Beaches Some big salmon are being spun up on Tuross beaches using metal slices. Moruya breakwall is fishing well for both salmon and tailor mainly using pillies for bait, but some are being caught using lures as well. Some nice bream, flathead and whiting are coming in off beaches in Moruya, Tuross and Congo. Beach worms have been the bait of choice this past week. Offshore Offshore fishing is picking up with reports of kingfish moving around just off Moruya. Plenty of good size flathead are being caught in 30-40 metres of water using pillies for bait. The reefs off Moruya have fished extremely well using the Entice range of jigs in roughly 40-50 metres. Nice size snapper, mowies and a few rat kings have all been jigged up off the reefs. This weeks freshwater report is brought to us by Josh, Tackle World Goulburn. Wyangla Dam Better numbers of yellas this week, although the weather hasn’t been kind the fish numbers are improving. The big tip is find the warm water! Parts of the dam are still very cold with temps in the low 20c range, but if you find areas that have +21-22c you will find the fish. The Lachlan is fishing the best, with most fish being caught on bait, kookaburra wrigglers & live yabbies seen to be the flavor around the trees. If you’re into trolling, Predatec martys in 65 mm or Stumpjumper No2 will do the trick. Pejar Dam Trout numbers have reduced, but David Pyles managed to catch one using Powerbait yellow eggs - a nice rainbow that found its way into the protein box. No bass this week, with the cooler weather having slowed the bite again. I would suggest a mixed bag this week - try fishing for both! A tassie devil or trout tune are the best bet for fishing deep for trout and a reaction bomb or Strada cringe will work best for the bass. If your bait fishing, target the trout on powerbait or worms. Wollondilly River Not too many reports this week - one lonely fish caught just below the BMX track down river from Victoria St bridge. The rain last week has dirtied the river a little and with better flow you need to fish a little heavier. This week try fishing with jigs like reaction bombs and ice jigs - they will give you the weight and action to attract a reddie or two.
