At Nacimiento, the spotted bass action is very good. The bite is best on plastics and reaction baits. Lots of fish to four pounds. Also a fair to good bite on white bass, with most one to two pounds. The crappie bite slowed. At Santa Margarita, the bass and panfish bites are fair to good with the bass starting to spawn. 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 a fair to good crappie and bluegill bites, and the bass bite is really taking off in shallow water on plastics and reaction baits. Also some reports of good smallmouth action at San Antonio this past week.
