The bass bite is fair at all four lakes and slowing as the weather and water cools. At Santa Margarita, the bass have slowed way down but the crappie continue to show on jigs and the bluegill/redear on red worms. Lopez Lake has a fair bluegill and a few bass and crappie are still showing. At Nacimiento, the spotted bass action remains fair to good with some quality spots in the catch. Best action on plastics and small swimbaits. The better bite has been in 12-plus feet of water. No reports from San Antonio.
