Santa Margarita Fishing Report

Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

Overall, it was not the best week for some that fished for hours with no trophy. But, other fishermen had luck with pan fish, either crappie or bluegill in different locations. Not certain I recall hearing anyone catching a bass and did hear about some bite on dive baits. Heard about one catfish being caught and lost near the shore on nightcrawler.

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....... Read More

Fire tiger colors are the talk...... Read More
