Location and Directions: The Santa Margarita River is located in south-western Riverside Co., near the town of Fallbrook. Most of the land surrounding the river is either privately owned, or part of the Camp Pendelton Marine base, where it flows into the ocean. Public access is allowed approx. 10 miles north of Fallbrook, off of De Luz Rd. From Fallbrook, take De Luz Rd. north to the split at Sandia Creek Dr. Parking is allowed on the north side of De Luz Road immediately west of the intersection of De Luz Road and Sandia Creek Drive, at what appears to be an old corral. Please visit Santa Margarita River info. for more information Other lakes and creeks in the area: Elizabeth Lake Castaic Lake Apollo Park Little Rock Res. Bouquet Canyon Creek Fishing Info: Due to the discovery of steelhead, an endangered fish in So. Cal. waters, the DFG no longer stocks this river with rainbow trout. However, there are wild rainbow and brown trout in this river, along with the native steelhead, which is very rarely sighted.
