Your Up to Date fishing report from the team at Tackle World Moruya Moruya River
A quieter week on the whole, with not a great deal to report from the river this week. There have been a few tailor and salmon hanging around the lower sections of the river, but these have started to slow up a bit. Live nippers pumped from the garland town flats will provide the best bait option and the best chance of getting a bite. Try casting them into the deeper holes and channels. You could try the above-mentioned live nippers under the bridge for bream and flathead in the main channel as well.
Tuross is dishing out the same punishment to keen anglers as Moruya this week, with low catches been reported. There are a few guys still getting some flathead around the Potato Point side of Tuross, but they have had to work hard for a few small fish and the odd keeper. Mulloway reports have quieted down this week, but that is not to say the fish aren’t there. Four ways traditionally holds good numbers of spawn run estuary perch this time of year. Once found cricket score numbers of fish can be caught. Just be sure to release all caught EP’s as there is a no take limit this time of year to allow them to spawn.
Rock and beach
The rock ledges for drummer have been the main option this week. Salmon off the break wall in Moruya have been scarce with the surrounding beaches holding about the same numbers of fish. If you manage to find the fish, pilchards on gang hooks or casting metal slices will provide tight lines and jumping fish.
Good catches of snapper and flathead are being reported in water ranging from 30 through to 50m of depth. Reports of gummy sharks have also come in during the last week in similar water depths. For those heading further offshore with tuna in mind, reports of bluefin and yellowfin continue to surface. These are stretching from Ulladulla right down to Bermagui. Try to find the temperature break that is holding bait schools for best success.
On a side note, we will be refurbishing the shop with new carpet on Monday and Tuesday, however we will still be open with staff ready to assist at the door!
Tight lines my friends, stay safe and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing … “
