Moruya River As the waters continue to clear the fishing improves throughout the system. The majority of the action this week has been in the lower sections towards the river mouth. Flathead, bream, tailor and trevally have all been reported down around the airport spur wall this week. Add in the odd school kingfish to stir things up, the fishing has been fun to say the least. The kings have been doing smash and grab missions into the river proper, then disappearing as quickly as they appear. They have been mixed in with the tailor and the trevally hitting the bait fish that have been in the system. Further up the system, the fishing continues to improve. Preddy’s wharf and the hole in the wall have seen continued catches of bream, flathead, whiting and trevally. Both baits and artificial lures have been working. Areas around the bridge and further upstream have been a bit quieter this week. Kiora bridge has seen a few bass caught in amongst the log jams that have accumulated on the bridge pylons. Spinnerbaits, soft plastics and surface lures have all worked around the top of the tide.
The fishing in Tuross remains much the same as last week. Good catches of bream, flathead, whiting and tailor and all being caught in the lower sections of the river. Baits and lures have all been working this week. The upper sections where the salt and fresh continue to mingle will see increased bass activity as the weather cools and the bass start to move into spawning mode.
Rock and beach
Same as last week - the beaches and rocky headlands have provided the best of the action this week. Good catches of salmon, bream, whiting and flathead have all been reported from all the beaches this week. A few sharks have also shown up after dark for those prepared to put the time and effort in. A good burley trail is a must to attract these brutes into the area, as is heavy enough leader to avoid the bite offs. On the headlands a few good drummer have also been reported. These hard-pulling brutes offer a lot of fun and a great feed! Strong hooks, a bread burley trail and prawn or bread baits will tempt these fish into biting.
Plenty of flathead in 30-40m of water have been reported this week, as well as a few hammer head sharks to about 4 foot were reported. Not much else has come to the fore this week, but for those who are able to get out, a feed can be brought on board.

On another note, with the current Covid-19 situation, the NSW government has allowed fishing to continue, as long as the social distancing regulations are maintained. For more information please go to http://www.nsw.gov.au
