Santa Margarita Lake Professional Review and Guide
"John White doesn’t remember the last time Santa Margarita Lake looked this healthy. Crystal-clear water spills over the banks and lush green hills, providing a spectacular spring backdrop. All sorts of wildlife are sprinkled about the lake’s edges, and large schools of fish dart about the shallows. “It’s been a long time coming,” the local tournament angler says while flippin’ a section that had been dry and brown for years. “I don’t know if I’ve ever seen the lake look this good.” This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping."
