Improvements continue as the river continues to clear up nicely. The clean water is now pushing well up past the hospital bring the flathead, bream and the odd estuary perch back into eating mode.
The airport flats and the area around Preddy’s wharf have been holding numbers of flathead, trevally, tailor bream and the odd whiting starting to turn up. The tailor can be a little on the annoying side down around Preddy’s wharf, as plenty of anglers are losing lures and rigs. Try throwing small metals if you want to target them.
Fingers crossed we some more whiting back in the river this year, as we have been missing a good surface bite for the last few years as a result of too much fresh.
There have been good flathead through the system this week, with the flood debris still creating issue in some parts of the river. Keep an eye out when navigating the system.
Towards the front of the system, the flathead, tailor, Luderick and bream can all be found both in the deeper holes, and now that the river is clearing up, on the flats again.
Up in the fresh, the bass will taking position back on their snags, now that the water levels have cleared and dropped.
Rock and Beach.
Salmon, tailor and the odd bream and whiting have been encountered now that the water temperature is starting to rise.
Moruya breakwall has been a bit hit and miss this last week, with the salmon there some days and not the next.
Snapper, gummies and flathead are all still on the cards at the moment. The water will be clearing up nicely as the northerly current clears conditions up nicely.
Try in the magic 30%40m for the snapper, while the flathead will be establishing themselves back over the sandy areas in the 15020m mark.
There still should be tuna out wide for the game crews, and it can’t be long before a few bill fish start to show up.
Maritime are doing their annual expired flare collection again, with Moruya having its go again at Preddy’s Wharf between 10am and 11:30am on Saturday 19th November. They then move over Hanging Rock boat ramp in the Bay from 1pm - 2:30pm on the same day.
Stay safe everyone and remember, “every days a good day for fishing…”
