Heat has continued to put a damper on fishing pressure across the region, but the bass bite is fair with the topwater action at all four lakes. At Santa Margarita, the bass have been fair on plastics and reaction baits, especially topwater, but the bluegill and crappie bites are fair to good on Crappie Nibbles and jigs or worms. Lopez has a fair to good bass bite, especially early on topwater baits, with panfish action also fair to good on small baits. All San Antonio parks and ramps are open. Few fishing reports information. At Nacimiento, the spotted bass action is good, with a lot of fish on plastics and reaction baits early and late in the day.
