Santa Margarita Lake Fishing Report

Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

Some bass were going after spinner baits, dark colored greens, blacks and blues. Crappie are definitely back if you can get the right color of jig, no luck on white or pearl right now. They are being caught mostly with grasshopper and fire tiger, so green with red or green with brow. You will need a boat to get these, they like being in deeper water. Catfish are here and there is no particular bait or place to find them. However one whopper as caught this past week weighing 17 pounds.
