Catfishing has Been Great

Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

Catfishing has been great using anchovies or mackerel sinking the bait to the bottom about 10 to 15 feet from shore.

Weather has been great during the mornings and afternoon with the wind moving in toward the evening.

The sale on boat rentals is still going on so come out and catch some catfish with us.
