Santa Margarita Fishing Report

Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

The water temperature was 80 degrees. The crappie bite still in high gear, with several anglers reporting wide open action from both boat and shore. Fishing mini jigs tipped with either a mealworm or a crappie nibble along weed lines, and steep banks has been the key to success. Bass fishing has been fair to good on jigs, shallow cranks, and frogs. Local angler Brian Berti got big fish honors with a 10.4 largie that fell for a square bill. Not many anglers targeting catfish, last reports were good on cut mackerel, and inflated ‘crawlers just below White Oak.

Bass: Good, Average size of 2.5
Catfish: Fair, Average size of 3lbs
Crappie: Excellent, Average size of 1lb
