Santa Margarita Fishing Report

Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

This has to be the toughest week so far for all species across the board. I talked to as many people that slopped by and not only did they have bad luck but so had everyone they chatted with. I know a regular out here got 2 crappie with a peal white jig and glow white crappie nibble. Also saw one guy on a boa across the cove jumping up and down about a 4 to 5 pound largemouth bass. That is all I have to report at this time. Not sure what the guy was using to land the bass. A ton of rain and wind moved in probably affecting the action here at the lake. May have a better week to come.

Crappie are going for darker colored jigs at about 25 feet deep, they are...... Read More
