Moruya River: Moruya river continues to improve. The slime weed still doggedly continues to hold bottom in the lower section of the river. Look for exposed sand flats with interspersed weed beds to find the fish. Weed bed edges next to sand, fished with hard body lures, vibes or soft plastics will find you a few flathead and bream. While live nippers have accounted for good numbers of whiting and bream. The river upstream of the bridge is weed free if you're not having any luck below the bridge.
Tuross River: Still the place to be! Excellent reports of flathead, bream, whiting and luderick have all come to light this week - live nippers have produced the best results. The whiting are up on the flats chasing surface lures, with Bassday Sugarpens and Jackson Ebi Panics working well, but any surface lure worked with a fast skittering retrieve will interest them. Good reports of Estuary perch also this week with long time member Mark, Dan and the kids getting into them up the back of the system using Squidgy bloodworm wrigglers - great to see 3 generations out doing what they love! Birds are working the lower parts of the system around Potato Point. These could be working bait schools being harassed by either tailor or salmon. Lots of fun on light gear!
Rock and beach: The salmon schools continue to hang around on most of the beaches at the moment. Just be sure your rod holders are well into the sand, or you may find your rod and reel being dragged into the surf by a good fish - luckily my fishing partner was quick enough to catch it before it disappeared forever! Reports of really good tailor have snuck in this week, try Brou Island and the southern beaches at dawn and dusk. Tie it with a high tide for best results. There is a bit of size to them with reports on 4-5kg fish being caught and lost.
Inland: the following report is brought to us by our guru in the Snowies - Adam. The annual Snowy Mountains Trout Festival started Saturday and runs through until Friday, November 8. With over $30k in prizes including a very nice boat and trailer package, plus thousands in cash giveaways, you'll be sure to win a prize or two.
Lake Jindabyne is fishing well and has risen to 81 per cent capacity.
Land based along the Kalkite arm is seeing some nice fish landed. Boaters are reporting good results around Waist Point up towards the Thredbo river and also along the Kalkite, the township end is producing smaller fish yet keeping anglers happy. Worms, yabbies or floating artificial baits is attracting attention. Bright and sparkly lures seem to be the flavour. As all trout trollers will tell you "you can't beat the old faithful Tassie Devils or Rapala's extensive range!"
