Santa Margarita Fishing Report

Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

Water temperature was 73. The recent heat wave has warmed up the bass bite, and anglers have been scoring both from boat and shore. Frogs, blades and drop shot all took their fare share of fish. The best areas have been around the marina, White Oak, and Mackey point. The seemingly endless crappie has subsided, although a handful of nice slabs were taken on mini jigs tipped with crappie nibbles in the White Oak area, as well some main lake points. Local angler Shawn Seitz reported good catfish action once again in the White Oak area of the lake, and checked in 3 nice blue kitties weighing between 7 and 10lbs, on cut mackerel. All other species were no shows.

Bass: Good, Avg Size: 3lbs
Catfish: Good, Avg Size: 8lbs
Crappie: Fair, Avg Size: 1lb
