Top water action has been starting to pick up

Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

Top water action has been starting to pick up in the farther back section of the lake, while crappie have still been biting on the shoreline. Plenty of shad in the marina still, so fisher men are still getting plenty of shot action! We’ve had a few monster catfish the past few weeks pulled out of the marina, but the bite has mostly been crappie and bluegill.
