Tackle World Moruya Fishing report Sept 4th 2020
Moruya River. Welcome to spring! From now on we will start to see steady improvements in the fishing as warmer currents can only be weeks away from turning up. The lower half the Moruya River is the most action at the moment Vivienne that the river is still experiencing a good amount of fresh water still coming out of the mountains. Areas around Preddy’s wharf, hole in the wall and the airport flats are all holding better numbers of fish to date. The hole in the wall has seen good numbers of bream, trevally and luderick being caught this week. Expect a good amount of water movement between tides, as Wednesday’s full moon is still affecting the tide phase.
Tuross River. There have been a few flathead caught in the lower half of the system this week, with Samaki Vibelious working in the deeper holes to tempt a few good flatties. There will be a few good bream and the odd trevally in these deeper holes until the systems starts to warm up and they disperse onto the systems abundant flats. Bring on summer!!
Rock and Beach. The Moruya break-wall has seen a few salmon landed this week, along with odd trevally. Pilchards on ganged hooks on paternoster rigs have been doing the job, as well as metals cast and retrieved to excite any salmon hanging off the wall. The beaches around south Congo are still holding good numbers of salmon, so these could well be worth a look this weekend. The rocky points have been holding a few good drummer after last weekends swells. Get a good burley trail going of pulped white bread to attract the fish you your feet, and hold on.
Offshore. There have been a few good fish caught this last week. Dirty water is still the predominant report, as the entire system is still getting over a lot of rain over the last month. Tiger flathead in 90m of water have been reported up to 55cm, as have good snapper in the magic 30-40m mark.
For those that like to chase the Aussie Bass, 1st Sept signals the start of the bass season here in NSW. All of the major local rivers along the coast hold bass in them where they turn fresh. Google earth is a great resource for finding good looking water, and how to access it. I know I’ll be chasing a few of these Aussie legends this summer, as it’s something I haven’t done for a few years.
We are celebrating the greatest of days this weekend, Father’s Day, with a minimum of 20% off in store. Come in and check out what we have the dad will love.
Thanks to Cameron Jarrett for the pics of his snapper caught last weekend off the bay in 30-40m of water. Remember you can email us pics of your prized catches and we will look at them and add them to the weekly report.
Stay safe everyone, and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing...”
