Tackle World Moruya Fishing Report

Moruya River.

Well it’s raining it’s pouring, this ol’ man wishes he was snoring…

The river, while running higher than usual doesn’t look to be any cause for concern this “weather event” round. It has however, gone from rapidly clearing and fishing very well, to BROWN! Insert, over-it face here! With the rain forecast to ease up this weekend, hopefully it won’t be too long before things return to normal.

Once again, the lower sections of the river will be the go to areas, as the fresh dirty waters will concentrate the fish in the deeper holes, and around the river mouth.

Mullet fillet, tuna fillet or lures with noise or vibration potential will be your best options this weekend.

Preddy’s wharf should be a good area to try, as a lot of bream will take up residence both along the main wall and inside hole-in-the-wall. You can expect to find a few trevally and the odd flathead in this area also.

Tuross River.

With the large river mouth opening along the main beach at Tuross, this system should return to normal quicker than Moruya. There will be plenty of flathead, bream and the odd mulloway to tempt from the main boat ramp right past the boat sheds and up to four ways this weekend. Oily baits will be the best option in the dirtier water, along with noisy style lures.

Rock and Beach.

Now that the huge seas of last weekend have abated, salmon, tailor, bream and even Luderick or Mulloway could be on the cards. Worms will be the go to for the bream, whiting and even a mulloway, while pilchards on gangs or metals will work a treat on the salmon and tailor.

Moruya breakwall copped a hammering last weekend with one section of concrete being flipped on its head by the big seas. This will take a while to repair, as the government takes time to repair these things. Credit for the breakwall photos goes to Maree Jackson photography.

Plenty of good bream, trevally, flathead , salmon and tailor have been taken from the wall this week, and this trend will continue this weekend.


With a good strong, warm eddy sitting right off the coast, the game crews have reported good numbers of both Marlin and Tuna out wide. While inshore there have been good numbers of both snapper, flathead, gummies and mowong all taken on the local reefs and sand patches.

More stock continues to make its way into the store in time for Easter, so feel free to come and checkout our range. Who knows, you might find something you didn’t know you needed We are well stocked with beach worms now, so come in and grab some if you are hitting the beaches or the rivers this weekend.
