With water temps actually warmer than the ambient air temps at the moment, the fishing is still going reasonably well. There have been numbers of whiting, bream, flathead, tailor and Luderick taken this week throughout the system, with the lower to middle stretches of the river producing the better results.
Preddy’s wharf continues to be a magnet for both visiting anglers and visiting fish. A few very nice tailor, some bream and the odd flathead can be expected from this area.
The airport flats, still is producing a few nice flathead, with the occasional bream and whiting still on the cards.
Further up the river the town bridge area is still producing some nice bream, flathead, tailor and the odd estuary perch along both banks and from the flats in the middle of the river.
The upper sections of the river from Yarragee up are starting to cool off substantially, and as such are becoming harder to find fish.
This system, no matter the season, will always be the south coast’s premier jewel. Flathead can be found year round, there are bream in the rack and snags, and more importantly, no commercial pressure. This is why Tuross continues to fish so well, year in year out!
The lower to middle sections of the river that are still holding reasonable water temps, are the go to areas at the moment. Anywhere from below the metal bridge at Bodalla to the mouth are going to be the best areas to fish. This allows for lots of area to try.
The flathead, bream, tailor and the odd whiting have all been found this week. So make the most of the water temp while we have it and get out for a fish.
Rock and Beach.
Tailor have been on everyone’s minds this last week or two, with good sized fish being found all along the coast. Wind sock has had some good schools of Tailor and some big salmon along this stretch of coast. The Moruya breakwall, continues to hold some good fish, with salmon, tailor, bream and flathead all being taken this week.
There are still some bream and whiting to be found on the beaches for those using beach worms or nippers. Make the most of them, because as soon as the water temps drop, they will move off to vacation somewhere else till next summer.
Snapper and flathead are still easily available to those wanting to go chase a few fish outside. The weather forecast doesn’t look too bad for this weekend. Day time temps are going to be pretty mild, with very little swell or wind. A good weekend to get out, at this stage.
We are in the process of learning our newly installed POS system, so if you pay us a visit this weekend, be kind, as we learn how to use it.
The bait freezer is stocked, still no mullet fillet as yet, Tweed still don’t have any.
Stay safe everyone and remember, “every days a good day for fishing…”
