Flyfishing report: Saltwater - Kosi

Date of Report: Sunday, 24th July 2022

Three nights ago we woke up to our first thunderstorm in months, wild and electric as can be! It was a full-on reminder that the start of our next summer season is not as far away as it feels early in the mornings!

For this time of the year fishing has been pretty good. We have been getting a fair amount of Shad, Bigeye kingies, Needlescale queenfish and Threespot Pompano. Spotted grunters and River snapper have been shoaling around the mouth in their hundreds, but not touching a fly.

A beast of a GT well over a meter was caught on South beach a couple of days ago by some live bait fisherman and luckily released back into the surf safely.

Got reports that fishing in the lakes has been very slow. Boats returning from full fishing days with only a single Grunter caught here and there.

Let me know if you need any accommodation, info or guiding service at Kosi mouth.
