Santa Margarita Lake Fishing Report

Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

Fishing slowed down with the rain and wind we had lately.

Saturday March 3rd a Bass Tournament was held out of White Oak.

First place was 5 fish at 251bs with heaviest fish at around 7Ib 4oz.

I believe crank bait, swim bait and drop shots with plastic worms were being used. Not much going on with catfish, bluegill, or red ear.

Crappie was biting near the store in early hours of day.
