After 15 Years, We Finally Received a Trout Stocking!

Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

After 15 years of waiting the lake was stocked with 2,000 lbs. of trout, some are of size to keep but most are still small. However it has made for a fun week! Kids are catching on the shoreline all over the place. Shad are running like crazy and the feeding frenzy has begun. Crappie, catfish and largemouth bass are all doing well.

I was personally out on a bait this weekend and saw fish brought in everywhere, all coved, the narrows, by the dam, all different depths and techniques. Fishing is good to say the least.

With the rain this past week it did cause a slight disturbance in success of anglers fishing day. Still heard about a 6.14 bass, a few redear and some crappie in the back narrows. All in all, Saturday was a great weather day but a slow day of fishing. With all the sunshine in the forecast I imagine this week coming up will be great. Throw a lizard or salamander, drop shot a senko or break out the buzz/chatter baits...... Read More
