Nacimiento Lake Fell to 13 Percent of Capacity
by Chad Burton and Chris Borden
The lake fell to 13 percent of capacity, and bass anglers reported decent fishing. There have been topwater fish available in the mornings, but most of the action has been on drop shot, Ned rigs, or Neko rigs in 5 to 20 feet of water. Spotted bass have also been going for crankbaits worked along underwater bluffs. The white bass have been boiling sporadically throughout the lake, and anglers can load up using Kastmasters, topwater, or in-line spinners during the boils. A few fish were also reported by anglers trolling white spoons. Catfish anglers reported decent fishing using mackerel, anchovies, and chicken liver.
