Hot Bites: Santa Margarita Lake has been fair to good for bass with most fish post spawn and up chasing baitfish. Even some topwater with fish to seven pounds reported. Redear, bluegill, and catfish also improving, and Bob Holder, Santa Margarita, landed a 17-pound blue cat on a fly-lined nightcrawler. Lopez is also fair to good for bass, with crappie fair, and more and more bluegill and redear showing. Nacimiento has had a few crappie reports and fair bass action.
