Santa Margarita Lake Fishing Report

Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

The weeds along the shore line are back heavily and the water clarity is not the best. Lake level is around 65%. Bass, redear and trout were the most talked about this week. Best bait seems to be a live red worm or night crawlers. Some top water action in the early morning and late evenings for the largemouth. Couple catfish going for mackerel just slow to take the bait.
