I just moved to Atascadero this year, and I'm looking for some good bass fishing spots. I came over from Fresno, and I can tell you that the bass fishing there was hit or miss. Luckily, I had a lot of lakes to choose from there; Shaver offered some smallmouth fishing, then there were spots in Pine Flat, trophy largemouth at Eastman, and some fair largemouth at Hensley.
So what are the major lakes around Atascadero for bass fishing? I'm going to be mostly shore based, but I will be getting into kayak fishing later. Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated!
