Tackle World Moruya Fishing report July 23rd 2021

Moruya River.

The fishing this week has been predictably on the quiet side. With very few people through the store this week, as a result of both a mid winter cold snap, and the current COVID conditions, reports have been very quiet. Based on previous winter experience, try the deeper holes where both bait and predators will tend to hide. Baits and artificials should both work in these areas. Fish slow, burley up and be prepared to wait for the bite. The areas around Preddy’s Wharf, quarry wharf, front of the hospital and Yarragee all have good holes that can hold reasonable fish. Rug up, get out, and do some exploring!

Tuross River.

Tuross has experienced the same as Moruya this week, with both cold weather, and reduced numbers on the water, the reports have been hard to come by. The traditional areas around the boat shed, four ways the Bodalla bridge and even up around snake flat could potentially hold fish this time of year. The water conditions will be much improved at the moment with no major rainfalls recorded to dirty it up. Fish slow and deep, add a good burley trail to bring the fish to you, and again be patient to have the best chance of finding a fish or two.

Rock and beach.

With the 5m swells we have had this week dropping right off, the rock ledges will have a had a really good stir up. There should be numbers of both Luderick and Drummer to be found from the stones. The beaches and breakwalls continue to hold a few salmon also. Look for the better gutters on the beaches to find a few fish. A burley trail on the beach is something that a lot of people overlook, but it can make a big difference to the fishing. It can be as simple as a burly cage and pellets tied to a bit of rope and allowed to wash around in the waves, to some of the most secretive recipes and concoctions known to man kind. The fact remains, that ANY burley is better than no burley. Give it a go, you might be surprised with the results.


With reduced people through the store, I don’t really have much to report on the offshore front. If you are heading out this weekend, please feel free to post up some pictures of your fish on this report. We love seeing what you guys are catching.

In store, we are running the Daiwa special on Bait Junkie soft plastics, buy 3 packs get one free! I also have 20% off all Shimano Zodias rods in stock. So if you were looking at getting yourself something nice rod wise, now is the time.

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