At Nacimiento, the spotted bass action is good. The bite is best on plastics and reaction baits. Lots of fish to 4 pounds. Also a fair to good bite on white bass, with most 1 to 2 pounds, with the fish showing for trollers off points. At Santa Margarita, the bass and panfish bites are fair to good. Best action on nightcrawlers and plastics, and some on reaction baits. Panfish best on small jigs topped with baits or live bait. Lopez Lake has been fair to good for bluegill, with a lot of small fish on bobber suspended baits around structure early and late in the day. The bass bite is also pretty good on plastics and reaction baits, especially early in the say. Continued reports of good smallmouth action at San Antonio.
