Evidence: Fishing at Moruya Heads has its rewards. 

Moruya Heads is the perfect place for a fishing adventure when you’re on holidays. It is ideally located opposite the beach, Moruya River is only minutes up the road, and the variety of fish you can catch is extravagant. In addition, many of the top-notch fishing spots are just a hop, skip, and a jump from our holiday park. Here are a few key options.

 

Dolphin Beach: Perch yourself next to our holiday park in a gutter, or try Pedro Point, which is a short walk up the beach. While flathead, bream, and whiting are on offer year round, they are less noticeable in winter. Use beach worms, squid, or prawns for bait; lure spinning is also productive.

Salmon is a great target in winter and a lot of fun to try to catch from the beach. A gang hook with pilchards for bait is recommended; so too are lures at high speed in the gutters.

Moruya River: Preddys Wharf (or from the bank) is a great spot to try to catch bream, whiting, flathead, mullet, garfish, trevally, and luderick. Shelly's Beach is also reliable; just up the beach at the break wall is the perfect place.

If in a boat, drift along the flats on the north side or along the wall on the south side. Jigging with plastics is very productive. Anchor near or just inside the ‘hole in the wall’, about 200m from Preddys Wharf boat ramp, and you’ll likely attract bream and flathead (small boats only). Upstream near the hospital is a good area for larger flathead.

Offshore: Straight in front of our holiday park is a very good spot to try your luck; you don't have to go far from the river mouth. Try down from Dolphin Beach in 50m-60m waters off Pedro Point and Congo. Flathead, snapper, mulloway, kingfish, leatherjackets, tailor, and salmon are all nearby and waiting.
