Water is Still A Bit Warm & Murky

Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

The water is still a bit warm and murky holding the fish down deep with little to no activity. Top water frogs and lures have made for some decent blow ups but no one seems to get a good look at the fish. Dark senko with red flecks and creature baits with blue flecks are some of the options people have had luck with. Setting the creature bait up weedless style or drop shooting that sneaks down is the best advice we have for this week. A Catfish or two hitting on night cralwers incidentally but even they have seems to shy away.
