Tackle World Moruya fishing report July 29th 2022

Moruya River. It looks like we are going to have a relatively clear, all be it cool weekend, this weekend. With no forecast rain at this stage, there should be something fishy to chase. The winds will be up a little coming in from the north, so south facing areas will offer more protection for those looking to get out for a fish this weekend.

The river is still a bit on the quiet side, with the odd smaller tailor and salmon in lower sections of the river. The flathead, bream and Trevally seem to be making anglers work for their catches at the moment. Further upstream under the town bridge, the weed beds are not a bad place to look for a few estuary perch, particularly after dark. The holes in front of the hospital, can produce a few nice fish this time of year, as they hide in the deeper water. Chance of a whiting, bream, flathead or trevally are on the cards.

Tuross River. Tuross is much the same as Moruya this week, with cooler water temps making fishing a little on the quiet side. There will be good protected areas to fish in Tuross this weekend, as it offers good all weather options to get out of the wind. There are still a few nice flathead being caught this week, as well as the chance of a mulloway either around the boat sheds, or further up stream around the snake flat areas. Live baits of mullet or soft plastics can tempt these fish into biting.

Rock and Beach. Salmon continue on most beaches to be the main stay of the fishing activity this week, with some good sized salmon still being caught. Bream in the mixed zones at the ends of beaches into the rocky headlands are still an option as well. Live worms, nippers or a nice bit of mullet fillets will work a treat. While the salmon are still readily hitting metal lures around the 40gm size or a whole pilchard. There continue to be reasonable catches of drummer from the stones this week as well. Swell conditions look to be ok for a session on the stones, with the winds dictating which ledges will be more comfortable to fish from.

Offshore. Tuna continue to be the buzz this week, as the run of yellowfin continues out wider. Snapper also are still coming over the sides of most boats this week, while flathead are still there but in slightly reduced numbers with the cooler waters.

Stay safe everyone and remember, “everyday’s a good day for fishing…” Team Tackle World Moruya.
