Santa Margarita Lake Fishing Report

Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

Biggest story for this week is Catfish. We are earing more about anglers hooking onto nice size and several Catfish. One fellow indicted he had yellow fin tuna getting freezer burn so guess what! Caught 6 Catfish day before. Biggest one about 18 pounds. Bass still hitting but not as often. Crappie seem to have disappeared but Bluegill and Red ear are doing well in shallow water with worms.
