Tackle World Fishing Report Feb 25th 2022

Moruya River.

With the continued rain, the river is slipping back into its dirty state this week. And with a less than good forecast for the weekend and next week, expect it to get even dirtier as the rains progress. The mantra that has become our fishing report, continues, fish the lower sections of the river for best success! With increased run off, smelly/oily baits will be the best option, so mullet fillet for the win would be my pick this weekend. For the lure guys, paddle tail style soft plastics with lots of noise/vibration potential will be the pick in high contrast colours. Whites, black & gold/silver, nuclear chicken colours will all work.

Try from the quarry wharf down to the river mouth for best chance of finding fish.

Tuross River.

With unbackable odds that Tuross is going to be exactly the same as Moruya this weekend, concentrate your fishing efforts towards the very front of the system for best success. The deeper holes would also be a great place to start looking, as the fresh rain waters sits on top of the denser heavier salt water, giving the fish pockets of salty water to hide in. In front of the boat shed is a prime spot to try.

Rock and Beach.

The beaches will offer the best chance of finding fish this weekend, particularly those away from the dirty outflow of the major rivers. Salmon will be on the cards, as will bream and whiting. Teals or ganged pilchards for the salmon, with the bream and whiting favouring beach worms, pipis or live nippers.

Moruya breakwall continues to see plenty of anglers trying their hand, with reasonable reports coming in of mixed bags of fish. Salmon, bream, trevally and flathead are all option available to those trying the luck on the breakwall this weekend.


With the warm currents continuing to push down from up north, the fad should continue to have both dolphin fish and kings as options to be targeted. Snapper and flathead will also be on the cards this weekend, as will gummy sharks.

With a wet weekend forecast this weekend, we have inexpensive rain wear should you need it also. Come in and we can help you out with anything you may need.

Stay safe everyone and remember, “every days a good day for fishing…”

Team Tackle World Moruya.
