Tackle World Moruya Fishing report Dec 10th

Moruya River.

At time of writing this, there are currently flood warnings in place for the Moruya river. Having just seen the state, and height of the river with another few hours to high tide to, caution is the best idea at the moment. Stay out of flood waters, if it’s flooded forget.

There is so much chocolate brown water and debris coming down the river, that a weekend learning a few knots,restocking the tackle box, or buying that new shiny rod and reel combo, will probably be the best option.

If you are still going to go for a fish, head to the airport flats on a rising tide with some oily baits or lures with lots of vibration potential to have the best chance of finding a flathead or two. There will be plenty of fish displaced and pushed down the river with the inundation of flood waters, so there is potential to find a fish.

Tuross River.

Tuross will be facing exactly the same water conditions as Moruya today and for the weekend. Stay out of flood waters.

Any fishing options for Tuross will be concentrated around the main boat ramp at the front of the systems this weekend. Oily baits, and again lures with lots of vibrations will be your best options.

Rock and beach.

This will probably be your best chance of wetting a line over the next few days, as any beach that is away from the major river mouths will have cleaner water, and will be holding Bream, whiting, salmon and tailor this weekend. Several of the beaches south of Tuross have been holding good numbers of big tailor this last week, while wind sock north of Moruya has had a few big salmon, and numbers of both bream and whiting.


There have been snapper a plenty offshore this week, with fish being found in as little as 10m of water all the way out to 50m of water. Soft plastics and baits have all accounted for good catches of fish.

The massive amounts of fresh dirty water pushing out of both Moruya, Tuross and the Clyde rivers will see the fishing go quiet for a week or so, but once the water starts to clear, you can expect good fish to turn up after the weather has eased up.

If you are chasing a Xmas bargain, we are clearing out all Tackle World fishing shirts at $30 in store, while stocks last!

We at Tackle World Moruya would like to congratulate Ronny and Gayle at Tackle World Merimbula on the upcoming reopening, of their newly rebuilt shop, back where it belongs on Market Street Merimbula. I would highly recommended stopping in to pay them a visit if you are down that way. I have seen the videos of the new shop, and it looks amazing!!

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

Team Tackle World Moruya.
