Lake Nacimiento Fish Report for 7-22-2022
The lake level remained steady at 23 percent of capacity
Lake Nacimiento - Bradley, CA (San Luis Obispo County)
by Chad Burton and Chris Borden
The lake level remained steady at 23 percent of capacity, and the spotted bass fishing has been great. Anglers used topwater early and during the boils, and then they switched to finesse plastics and vertical spoons mid-day. White bass have been chasing shad throughout the lake, and when anglers spot a boil topwater lures can score both white and spotted bass. Crappie anglers reported a fair bite, but solid quality on minijigs and small live shiners over submerged brush. Catfish ate dip bait, chicken liver, and fresh shrimp soaked in deeper coves around the lake.
