Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

Top water fishing is starting to pick up, and we are seeing lots more bass at the marina!

Large catfish still being caught in the afternoon-evening time inside the marina.

Trout are less common now while blue gill, redear, and crappie seem to be caught regularly.

The weather is starting to warm up again so dont forget your sunscree, fishing hat, and LOTS of water before you visit us! Have a great week and happy fishing!!!

The bass bite is slowly picking up, anglers from across the coast have been coming to get in on the action! Shad have been around the marina and shore, making for fantastic fishing. The area around white oak (second boat ramp) has been full of crappie, bluegill, redear, and even some small mouth. Trout are still biting like crazy from the shore AND trolling off of boats. Happy 4th of July, see you at the lake! Water Temperature: 81-83 degrees ...... Read More
