Lake Santa Margarita report........
Jun 6th, 2006, 1:07pm
 
  Santa Margarita lake is flyrod heaven!  The weather is warm, the view is awesome!  On the fly, the bite is "HOT" for redear perch, bluegills, golden shiners, crappie up to 16", we even caught  two large warmouth perch, small bass everywhere, and some "quality" bass still cruising the shallows, trout are still being caught we are seeing them early, and then again late in the day.  Last month I landed a largemouth that weighed in at 12.96 lbs.(not bad for a post-spawn northern strain bass) the fish hit a Blane Chockletts "Gummy-minnow fly" last Sunday still seeing big bass, just not as many as before...............Mark

Gotta agree, Hawaiianhillbilly  Smiley
 
Santa Margarita is one of my favorite lakes. I've had some great days there fishing for largemouth but never got one that big  Shocked, congradulations! The crappie and bluegill fishing is also great at times and the trout in winter. Have caught many trout there over 3 lbs.
 
I like fishing from my kickboat and it's a great lake for that; no water skiers or jet skies!

 Sunday, 11Jun06 Santa Margarita lake was cold & windy.  The bass had lock-jaw even though we saw a handful of them cruising the shore-line up to 6 lbs. or so.  The Bluegills, and the Redear sunfish were found in shallow mossy bays and were very co-operative!  I threw Olive beadhead, weighted Cream colored, and Pheasant tail nymphs at them. Sometimes taking a long steady strips, and sometimes short quick strips.  Young bass fingerlings spiced up the day loving the short quick strips exclusively(they are soooo cute at that age) "dat's all for now!" .......Hawaiianhillbilly

Have you been fishing around the marina area or west of the launch ramp? I went up Sunday, windy and cold as you said.....forgot my reel case.......so I couldn't say how the fishing was. Thinking about heading up there on Saturday morning this week with my reels for a change.
