Santa Margarita Lake Fishing Report

Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff


Terrible week for fishing. Many people had a good time with family fishing, catching several little ones but very few keepers.

For those lucky enough crappie were biting on crappie nibbles on jig near the Dam. Bass have been scarce as well as bluegill and redear. Some catfish have been taken on Mackeral, chicken livers as well as dough bait in the coves off of shore.
