Your Up to Date fishing report from Tackle World Moruya August 14th 2020

Moruya River Well that was an interesting weekend to say the least. In over 15 years of living in Moruya (I know, I still don’t qualify as local), that was the highest I’ve ever seen the river. More than that, the amount of debris that was pumping down the river was, and still is astounding, you only have to venture down to the beach at North Head to see how much has been deposited on the sand to get an idea. With all that being said, the fishing action this week has been non-existent and understandably so. If you are keen to wet a line this weekend the lower, saltier sections of the river, are really going to be your best options. Oily, smelly baits will be the go to this weekend, as will lures with lots of vibration or noise. Tuross River This system will the in the same situation as Moruya this weekend. Try the lower sections of the river, with oily/smelly baits or lures with lots of vibration/noise potential for your best chance at finding a fish. Rock and beach These areas probably offer the best chance of finding a fish this weekend. Try the beaches that are removed from major river mouths, as these will have relatively cleaner water. Just be aware that some beaches have had substantial erosion on them, which has resulted in sand cliffs to 10-12’ high making access and egress difficult. Be careful not to be trapped on a beach at high tide, with no way off due to an unclimbable sand cliff! Fisho’s are still pulling plenty of salmon off South Congo beach! If you are planning a session from the rocks this weekend, give yourself plenty of time to watch the swells before committing to a particular ledge. We have seas rising to 3m forecast for Saturday night, before they slowly start to drop during Sunday. Offshore We haven’t had any reports from offshore this week for obvious reasons. If you are planning a trip out this weekend, keep a keen eye peeled for floating debris in the water, of which there is a lot. If you decide not to fish, you can always pop in for a visit, restock the tackle box, replace that line that has been on that reel since Moses was a boy, or just come in for a chin wag. With Father’s Day approaching, come in and find something for dad. Or dads, come in and find something you can drop hints about . Stay safe everyone and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing … “ Team Tackle World Moruya
