Hot Bites: Very light fishing pressure at all the lakes on the Central Coast and few reports. The few anglers fishing Santa Margarita Lake report slow to fair action for bass, but other species have slowed way down. At Lopez Lake, the bite has been slow for bluegill and redear with the best action on wax worms and meal worms. Also sluggish action for bass. Nacimiento has had a slow bass and bluegill bites and very few crappie reports.
