Tackle World Moruya Fishing Report

Moruya River.

Well, that was summer! A little late and a little short, but good none the less. This doesn’t mean the fishing packs up shop and closes just yet! The water temp is going to stay warm right through to April, before it starts to cool down. Easter is our next holiday period, and that is only a month away.

The river this week, has been continuing on its fishy way, with good reports all along its length. There have been reports of good tailor back in the system hanging around Preddy’s and Quarry wharfs after dark. There have also been reports of a few small mulloway around the holes near the quarry wharf as well.

Flathead have been in great numbers throughout the system, from the spur wall and airport flats, all the way up past Yarragee bend. Bream anglers have been enjoying the warm waters also, with fish holding along the wall that line the river, on the flats and in the racks. Soft plastics and hardbody lures are a great option to temp a few of the estuary staples.

For those chasing whiting, squirt worms yet again are the go to bait, while the surface lure brigade has finally been have some success. A rising tide over nipper beds and weed bed edges has seemed to be the key to unlocking whiting on surface lures.

Under the town bridge after dark, the estuary perch can be found hanging over the weed beds that line the southern banks. Soft plastics, surface lures and lightly weighted live nippers have all been working, with some very respectable sized fish being taken.


Again this week, this system has proven itself one of the areas premier fisheries. Flathead have been plentiful throughout the system, with bream also readily available amongst the racks and whiting on the flats. We can expect that this system to be busy with anglers getting ready for the annual Tuross Bream and Flathead competition on next weekend.

Check out the post from Monday of the calibre of flathead being taken on Tuross this week.

With a massive system to explore, your fishing options are varied. So get out and enjoy this premier fishing destination this weekend.

Rock and Beach.

Salmon have agin been plentiful along the coast, on both the beaches and headlands. There have been reports of some nice tailor also. The Moruya breakwall continues to fish well, with the usual suspects of salmon, bream, flathead and Trevally all being available. Tailor have been around at dawn and dusk also.

Given the water temps, tuna from the stones are a very viable option, with reports of yellowfin being taken from Merimbula wharf in the last few days. Pretty point would be the best area to look at if this something that interests you.


Snapper have been plentiful this week, although they have been deep at around the 50-60m marks. Flathead, also have been available in the shallower water around the 20m mark. The artificial reef continues to hold bait schools and in turn the odd predator.

The game crews have been kept busy with tuna and Marlin both available out wide of the warm currents that are running along the coast at the moment.

With summer receding in the rear view mirror, the fishing will continue to fire for the next month or so. Easter is just around the corner, and we are well stocked and ready for your visit.

We are currently running a March Madness campaign on all Atomic Arrowz rods, with 25% off marked prices until the end of the month. Come in and check out the range, as it a while stocks last scenario.

We are still looking for a weekend casual, so please feel free to drop in your resume in store and have a chat with me, if this is something of interest.

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