Tackle World Moruya Fishing Report June 11th 2021

Moruya River. With another week done and dusted, hopefully the cold snap we are currently in doesn’t drop too much more rain for the weekend. Currently we have about 30mm fall since Thursday, so it shouldn’t bring too much into the river system . The fishing has been slow, but consistent. With a few flathead and bream being caught throughout the system from the lower section right up past the hospital. Try the deeper holes and flats adjacent to these holes as your first stop to try and find the fish. Live nippers and baits soaked deep is a good option this time of the year. As are soft plastics, blades and hard bodies fished slowly and deep also.

Tuross river. With the long weekend this weekend, expect Tuross to be a busy place. The whole system is starting to clean up more, opening up more opportunities for local and travelling anglers. Good bream are still coming from above the Bodalla bridge, whilst further down stream, good flathead and bream again have been found in the middle and lower sections down in the deeper holes. Coopers Island road looks to be remaining open to the public for the time being, with work being done with the council and land owner to maintain the interests of everyone. If you are going to fish this area, please respect the land owners rights, leave gates as you find them, and please take your rubbish out with you.

Rock and Beach. Salmon continue to the main stay of the beach action this week, with the numbers of tailor being caught dropping off significantly. The Moruya rock wall also continues to fish well, with the usual bream, trevally flathead and salmon all being caught. Just remember that the detour via Broulee road will need to be taken to access the wall and wind sock beach as North head drive is closed for road works till the end of the month. Expect a few drummer to start coming on the chew as the water temps drops, and hopefully some snapper.

Offshore. Snapper and flathead have been plentiful this last week, with the snapper still being caught in the 5-10m mark, but also in the 20-30m mark as well. There have been reports of reasonable numbers of Bluefin tuna out wide for those who have the interest to chase these blue water beauties out wide. Currents look to be bit mixed up at the moment with cooler water starting to really become more prevalent.

I have added extra stock to the half price rod bucket this week, so come in and have a look if you are in the market for a new rod. We continue to have 30% off selected Shimano reels on the front counter as well as discounted squid jigs on the squid jig wall.

Enjoy the Queens Birthday long weekend, and don’t forget that double demerits are in affect this weekend.

Stay safe everyone and remember, “every days a good day for fishing...” team Tackle World Moruya.
