Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

Fishing right now is doing well. A lot of baby bass swimming around the lake. Bass biting on standard baits crank and swim along with worms. They are hanging in deeper water. Pan fish are hitting on worms, nibbles and spinners in deeper water near the surface. Catfish are doing pretty well now in the coves. Mackerel works well.
