Tackle World Moruya Fishing Report
Moruya River. The warmer currents are continuing to push down along the coast at the moment, and are very slowly starting to bring the water temps up. The lower section of the Moruya river will be a little warmer than the upper sections, particularly on a run in tide. Try around the airport flats and the Preddy’s wharf areas for the best chance at finding fish. Fingers crossed the Flathead and Bream will be reacting to the warmer water pushing into the rivers, and be on he chew this weekend. Sunny warm days will also help to start the water temp climbing. The slime weed is still present in the middle to upper sections of the river, and is making the fishing very hard. In short, the lower sections will be the best options in the Moruya system this weekend.
For the Bass fishos, we are now back into open season on the Bass. The bigger females will be starting their move back up into the fresh after spending winter doing their spawn run in the brackish waters. If you want to chase a XOS model, early season is the best time to get onto one.
Tuross River. Much like Moruya, the lower section of the Tuross system will be your best option this weekend. Areas around the southern Potato Point side, the Boat Shed and around 4 ways will be the best option on the rising tide. The Flats areas will be the first areas to spark back to life in Tuross over the next few weeks to month. The flathead in Tuross are always the first in the Eurobodalla area to come to life. Large shallow flats systems, that warm quickly with warmer and longer days, always see the first of the flathead action.
Rock and Beach. The Salmon and Tailor continue to be the main stay of activity along the coast this last week, with reports that they may be starting to thin out a bit. The Moruya Breakwall, and any beach that has a good gutter system, should be holding some nice fish this weekend. Along the rocky headlands, the Drummer continue to play ball for those who like a bit of close quarters combat.
Offshore. The warm currents pushing down the coast have brought some unseasonal fish with them. We have had one reliable report of several free jumping Marlin spotted around bait schools only a kilometre offshore in the Bingie area. These will certainly surprise any angler looking for a feed of flathead or snapper, that have been found relatively easily around the 40m mark this week.
