Santa Margarita Fishing Report

Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

Water Temperature: 79-81 degrees

We've been seeing beautiful weather here at the lake in the mid to high 80's, bringing out lots of bass and pan fish! Catfish are still biting in the marina off of anchovies, green large night crawlers, and chicken liver.

Bass have been caught using drop shots with roboworms (margarita mutilators) and regular night crawlers.

Pan fish love the regular night crawlers as well, or small plastic shad type bait.

Have a fantastic week, and we'll see you at the lake!
