Monday morning fishing report: after the rains

DESPITE the water still being stirred after the recent rain events, there were some excellent fishing catches over the weekend in the estuaries and rivers in the Narooma district on the Far South Coast.

Nick Cowley and Alex Krantz had a great session on the Tuross.

Nick reports that after all the rain, fishing locations where limited, yet Tuross has produced some good fish as they found up the back, fishing from the bank where small creeks of fresh water flowed out into the salt.

They got some great sized estuary perch catching fish close to the 50cm mark with the majority of fish in the 40cm range taking hard-bodies and 2.5inch Zman Grubs.

Also Coopers Island fished well for bream and whiting.

“I was surprised all the EPs we got where all solid big fish photos didn't do them a lot of justice of their size.”

Local estuary fishing guide Stuart Hindson meanwhile reports having  a great couple days with his clients Dazza, Mark and David on the Clyde.

The jewfish were tough, but they managed a pup on the weekend, plus some nice flats to 74cm and finished the day off with 15 whiting and bream on surface

“Had to work hard for them in the chocolate water, managed a few though was hard going..... Thanks boys had a blast as usual....”

Closer the Narooma, Mummaga Lake has been firing post rain for the locals.

The Ocean Hut Compleat Angler reports that while some fishos are sitting around waiting for the water to clear up from all the recent rains, "die hard extremists" are out there making the most of what the dirty water have to offer.

Local "mad keen" fisho Hippie, got a cracking 81cm croc from the murky waters of Mummaga Lake. Notice the Shad's lure that did the damage has got the perfect colourings for these murky waters.

Going one better, fellow Narooma local Andrew “Milko” Cowley got this beauty 85cm flathead in Mummaga Lake over the weekend.
