Tackle World Moruya Fishing report 20th April


Moruya River

The quarry wharf area has been keeping the kids amused over the school holidays. Many species such as leather jacket, luderick, bream, tailor and pinky snapper have all been caught on live yabbies and prawns.

Some whiting are still hanging around the bridge flats on a high tide. Atomic jerk minnows in muddy prawn colour have worked using a fast retrieve. Baits like worms and yabbies have also been working well.

Flathead are being caught just up from the hospital with soft plastics and Daiwa double clutch hard bodied lures working best.

Tuross River

Some nice estuary perch have been on the move down towards the front of the system and have been caught using grubtail soft plastics in the snags.

Flathead are being caught just up from the highway bridge on gulp soft plastics, 75mm Daiwa double clutch hardbodied lures and baits like prawns and blue bait.

The sand flats near the boat ramp down the front have been holding some nice bream and whiting with baits like beach worms and yabbies working best.

Rocks and Beaches

The break wall is fishing reasonable for both salmon and tailor using surf rigs and full pilchards. Bream and whiting have also been caught on North Heads beach on baits like prawns and worms.

The odd squid is being caught around the south Broulee area and a few nice size salmon have also been spun up off the rocks.

Pedro Point and Potato Point beaches have both been producing everything from bream and whiting through to salmon and tailor on baits like prawns, pillies and worms.

Unfortunately due to rough seas lately we do not have any offshore reports this week.

The following fresh water report is brought to you by Josh, owner, Tackle World Goulburn.

Wyangala Dam

If you managed to keep out of the wind you would of been rewarded with fish! We have had good reports all week from the dam. If you’re after yellas head to Greenmantle and above to crooked creek there's good numbers in the trees, mostly being caught on live shrimp and yabbies. If you’re after cod, stick to the basin around Abercrombie and Taylor's ramp wall, they have both been producing good fish mostly on spinnerbaits. Trolling at this time of year is very effective - stick to 4-5 metres of water and look for good structure on your sounder - you will soon find fish.

Pejar Dam

Has anyone got a spare Grenade? Unfortunately the dam has shut down - zero fish reported this week! There was more talk about the water level dropping than fish being caught. That happens sometimes when the dams water is released for environmental flow for the river. If you’re thinking about heading out there leave it to Sunday, the weather looks good and it should be nice and warm on the water.

Wollondilly River

Great fishing! Every day someone reports catching reddies in the river. The most reports this week have been above Marsden Weir, with common results being 5-6 fish in a session mostly on lures with the odd few on worms from the bank but the Kayak fisho’s are the ones catching the numbers. The best lures are Hester's, cringe and warlocks.

Tight Lines my friends and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing … “

A HUGE SHOUT OUT to Paul Worsteling for dropping in store Tuesday evening to delight a great turn out of both children and adults alike. Thanks Paul!!
