Tackle World Fishing Report February 25, 2022
With continued rain, the river is getting dirty again this week. And with less than good forecasts for the weekend and next week, expect them to get even dirtier as the rains progress. The mantra that has become our fishing report, continues, fish the lower sections of the river for the best success! With increased runoff, smelly/oily baits will be the best option, so mullet fillet for the win would be my go-to this weekend. For lure enthusiasts paddle tail style soft plastics with lots of noise/vibration potential will be the choice in high contrast colors. White, black and gold/silver, nuclear chicken colors will all work.
Try from the quarry wharf to the mouth of the river for the best chance of finding fish.
With the insurmountable odds of Tuross being exactly the same as Moruya this weekend, focus your fishing efforts towards the very foreground of the system for the best success. Deeper holes would also be a great place to start looking, as cool rainwater sits on top of denser, heavier saltwater, giving fish pockets of saltwater to hide in. In front of the boathouse is a privileged place to try.
Rock and Beach.
Beaches will offer the best chance of finding fish this weekend, especially those away from the dirty flow of large rivers. Salmon will be there, as will sea bream and whiting. Teals or pilchards grouped together for salmon, sea bream and whiting favoring beach worms, pipis or live tweezers.
The Moruya breakwater continues to see many anglers trying their hand, with reasonable reports of bags of mixed fish. Salmon, sea bream, trevally and flathead are all available options for those trying their luck on the breakwater this weekend.
With warm currents continuing to push north, fashion should continue to have both dolphin fish and kingfish as options to target. Snapper and flathead will also be on the charts this weekend, as will gummy sharks.
With a rainy weekend expected this weekend, we have cheap rainwear if you need it too. Come in and we can help you with anything you might need.
Stay safe everyone and remember, “everyday a good day for fishing…”
