Really Good Week of Fishing

Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

Really good week out here for the few that decided to fish. Tons of great sized crappie were caught this week. Be cautious some females have eggs in their bellies. Bass are going for a small snack so pull out those smaller lures and soft baits. Live worms are still pulling in some bluegill and catfish.

This coming weekend December 19-20th the marina store is offering $10 per hour fishing boat and $20 per hour pontoon boat rentals. We are open 7-4:30/ Stop renting at 1:30 so be here before then!
