Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

Crappie are around 10 feet deep which is the most shallow this species has been for a really long time. Water temperature came up 2 degrees and has created some movement. Crappie jigs dark in color have been the key. Remember they are line shy so use 2 or 4 pound test for the best results. Catfish are going for frozen shad right now, must be tired of mackerel. Slow bit however. Bass are being found by local angels sand know the lake and it’s coves. There is no one in particular location or near any certain landmark.
