Tackle World Fishing Report Aug 31st

Your up to date fishing report from the team at Tackle World Moruya

Moruya River

A few good reports this week from both ends of the river with some bream, trevally, luderick and whiting being caught around Quarry wharf and the hole in the wall. Bait of choice has been freshly pumped nippers and squirt worms. Up the back around Yaragee a few flathead have been landed mainly being caught on strips of mullet and tuna.


Nice bream are being caught around the oyster leases at the moment with hard bodies lures like Daiwa Double Clutch and Jackson Athlete 70mm suspending doing the job. Soft plastics like squidgie bio tough double tail grubs have been working well lightly weighted in the snags for both bream and perch .

Rocks and beaches

The beaches are working well for salmon and the occasional tailor at the moment first thing in the morning before the wind gets up. Arma metal slices around the 40 gram size and ganged pilchards are working the best. Squid are still being caught around most of the headlands jigs of choice have been Shimano Sephia and Ika jigs.


Not too many reports this week but the guys that were able to get out report good numbers of snapper up to 4.5 kilo being caught in close in around 20 metres of water using Gulp 5 inch soft plastics. The guys heading out wider report good numbers of snapper, morwong, flathead and gummy sharks with a number of pesky pike thrown in. Fish bait and Lund’s squid have been bait of choice with a few fish falling to the new Baku Baku jigs from Shimano - simply drop the jig to the bottom wind it back up a metre or so and put the rod in the rod holder and let the swell do the work for you!

The following report is proudly brought to us by Adam – our guru in the Snowy Mountains.

Lake Eucumbene: Is sitting steady at 25% capacity. Bait fishing early morning and late evenings, “Worms and PowerBait” getting good reports from Anglers Reach, Old Adaminaby and Buckenderra.

Trolling in the 4m mark is the key, plenty of fish in the 40-50cm length range to tangle with. Spinning the edges this past week hasn’t been as productive due to clear sunny conditions, put the hours in walking the banks, taking in the scenery, peppering the waters with your favourite offerings and you are sure to be rewarded with a wild brown or feisty rainbow.

Lake Jindabyne:

68% and rising and looking very fishy. Jindy is fishing well, boaters are finding fish around the township end right up into the Kalkite arm, mornings through to 10am, then 3pm onwards seems to be the feeding times.

Tassie Devils are standing out especially in bright greens, pink or solid black patterns. Calm days are ideal for sight casting your fly’s, bait or lures.

Tantangara Dam:

Now at 26% capacity and rising. Access is 4x4 only, very slippery and snowy. It’s advised to phone the Adaminaby Angler or Service station for daily updates.

If you find yourself fishing through the middle of the day and the fish are shut down rig up some soft plastics, ZMan 2.5” CrawZ or Barkley Gulp 2” Crabby, both are awesome little plastics that present life like, Trout love hitting them hard. Jig heads of 1/8 = 3.5g and under is all you will require. Grab yourself some TT Lures NedlockZ series jig heads for a more life like presentation.

Tight lines my friends and remember “Every day’s a good day for fishing …”
