Make the Most of Your Time at Lake Nacimiento

Lake Nacimiento Activities

Spend quality time at Lake Nacimiento

Whether you live on Lake Nacimiento permanently, you stay in a long-term or vacation rental, you visit for a weekend of camping or glamping, or you visit for a day trip, make the most of your time at the lake! Summer is quickly coming to a close, so as your Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I am here to offer you some tips on how to increase the quality of your lake time.

I recently came across a blog post from Mommy Has a Story about a couple who spent their wedding anniversary at Lake Nacimiento. Her tips were offered for how to have a romantic lake getaway, but most of them hold true for anyone looking to spend quality time at the lake!

Take a page out of her rulebook:

1.  Go cell phone and Wi-Fi free. Whether you’re here for a short trip or a permanent stay, it’s a great reminder not to spend all of your lake time on your phone. Take a few pictures, then put the phone away. This will force you to talk and interact with each other, which could result in better memories!

2.  Bring music. Music is always a great way to amp up the energy and make the atmosphere fun! Bring a portable CD player, or load up songs on your smartphone and bring portable Bluetooth speakers. The internet might not work on your phone, so plan ahead with a playlist!

3.  Go boating. If you spend time at Lake Nacimiento, you’ll want a boat! Whether you have your own, or you rent one, be sure to spend quality time on the water. It could be a speed boat, pontoon boat, fishing boat, kayak, paddle board, blowup tube, whatever you prefer. If it gets hot, jump into the water!

4.  Get out of your comfort zone. Do something that you normally don’t do at Lake Naci. If you usually cruise around on a pontoon boat, consider trying your luck at some water sports off a speed boat. Jump off some of the cliffs around the lake. Rent a jet ski. Get your adrenaline pumping!

5.  Bring wine. Every occasion is better with some local Central Coast wine, am I right? Take some time to go wine tasting in the Paso Robles region and get to know the local wineries. Purchase a bottle or two of your favorite wines and enjoy from your deck or around a campfire.

Keep things interesting by trying some new activities at Lake Nacimiento before summer is up, and make sure the time you spend with loved ones is quality time! If you’re interested in purchasing a Lake Nacimiento home, contact me. As a Lake Naci real estate agent, I am here to help you accomplish all of your buying and selling goals in the Central Coast real estate market!

Lake Nacimiento Summertime Activities

Lake Nacimiento

Enjoy water sports on Lake Nacimiento

Summer is the perfect season for hanging out at Lake Nacimiento! The sun is shining, the weather is hot, and this summer, Lake Naci is fuller than it has been in years! To help you plan your summertime activities at the lake, check out this guide. Whether it’s your first year living at the lake, you’re relocating to Lake Naci soon, you’re renting a home for the summer, or you’ve lived here forever, you’ll want to keep this guide handy! As your Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I am here to answer any questions you may have about the lake.

Here’s a few popular activities to enjoy:

  • Water Sports – Have you tried your luck on water skis or a wakeboard? Lake Nacimiento has miles of inlets and coves, open bays and winding rivers, making it ideal for boats to spread out and cruise around turns! This is why it’s so popular for waterskiing, fly-boarding, wakeboarding, wake surfing, paddle boarding, tubing, jet skiing and more. We see a lot of photos and videos of people enjoying water sports on our Lake Nacimiento Facebook page! If you have one you’d like to share, visit our page and do so!
  • Fishing – If water sports are a little too wild for your liking, you might be more of a fishing fan. There’s nothing better than heading out to the lake early in the morning, or late into the evening, and catching a sunrise or sunset while relaxing in your fishing boat and seeing what you catch. Lake Nacimiento is the only lake in California stocked with white bass, and you’ll also find largemouth and smallmouth bass, bluegill and crappie, carp and catfish. Head to an inlet and enjoy some quiet places to cast your line!
  • Boating – Even if you’re not pulling skis or tubes on the end of your boat, you can still cruise out on the lake any time you wish! All types of boats are popular on Lake Nacimiento, from pontoon boats and speed boats, to kayaks and canoes, so just pick the one that best suits you. Pack some sandwiches, water and ice cold beverages, and make a day of it, cruising around the pristine waters, and jumping off the boat for a swim from time to time to cool off in the water!
  • Community Activities – Local communities that surround Lake Nacimiento offer tons of fun, family-friendly activities at the lake all summer long! For example, at Oak Shores, there are Friday Night Pontoon Boat Nights, where you head out on a boat and cruise with your neighbors! There are also special events at the pool, outdoor movies, potluck dinners and more. You can keep up with these events on our Lake Nacimiento Facebook page, or the Oak Shores Facebook page!

All summer long, you can enjoy swimming, boating, fishing, water sports, community activities, sunset strolls, sunbathing, camping, picnicking and more at Lake Nacimiento. What is your favorite summertime activity at the lake? Leave a comment and share!

Enjoy your summer at the lake, and when ready to accomplish Lake Nacimiento real estate market goals this summer, contact me! I’m your Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, here and ready to help you with your buying and selling needs.

What to Do At Lake Nacimiento This Fall

lake nacimiento

Enjoy Lake Nacimiento this Fall

The seasons change on the Central Coast, but the weather stays warm for quite a while! That means that you’ve still got plenty of time to enjoy time at Lake Nacimiento. The lake is open to the public, and the air is clean. As a Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I’d like to fill you in on what there is to do at the lake year-round.

If you’re not too familiar with Lake Nacimiento, allow me to introduce you to this Central Coast gem. The lake is famous for its 165 miles of shoreline. Surrounding the lake is gorgeous oak and pine forests. It is situated in the Santa Lucia Mountains and has 18 miles of water to enjoy. So, whether you’re spending time in or out of the water, you’ve got lots of options!

If you’re up for a dip in the water or a boat ride, water sports are incredibly popular on the lake, such as wakeboarding and water-skiing. There’s even a Facebook page dedicated to water sports at Lake Nacimiento. If you love adventure, it’s a great way to meet others who share that adventurous spirit!

If you enjoy something a little more relaxed, there are also plenty of kayakers and paddle-boarders out on the water. You could also take out your speed boat or pontoon boat, or rent one in the area. If you’ve got a fishing boat, fishing is mighty popular on Lake Nacimiento!

This is the only lake in California stocked with white bass. It also has just about every other native warm water fish, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, bluegill, crappie, carp, catfish and more. Fall is one of the best times to catch white bass! Where you should fish in the lake depends on what you hope to catch.

The latest fishing reports say that bass and bluegill have been biting most in Lake Nacimiento, along with some crappie. Head out on the water early in the morning or in the evening for the best chances at a bite, and for more calmness and quietness found on the lake.

If you’re not up for going in the water, you could always hang out on the gorgeous shorelines as well! Fly kites, have a picnic, lounge in the sun, or just sit and watch a sunrise or sunset. If you live on Lake Nacimiento, you have the luxury of enjoying the lake’s beauty from your own backyard, patio or deck, away from the crowds!

Want to buy a Lake Nacimiento home, so you can enjoy these activities year-round? Looking for a vacation home at the lake? I specialize as a Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, and I am ready to help you with all of your home-buying, home-selling or relocating needs. Contact me!

Summer Activities at Lake Nacimiento!

Lake Nacimiento

Enjoy watersports at Lake Nacimiento

Fourth of July weekend might be over, but summer is just beginning! If you haven’t made it out to Lake Nacimiento yet, now is the time to do so. Summer is such a wonderful season for enjoying lake activities, and as your Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I’d love to fill you in on all that you can enjoy here at this Central Coast gem!

Fishing at Lake Nacimiento

Lake Nacimiento is the only lake in California stocked with white bass, and anglers can find just about every native warm water fish here, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, bluegill and crappie, carp and catfish. Black bass are found around brush, rocks and off the points. Catfish are found in shallow areas and at heads of coves. Bluegills are found along shores and in inlets. Crappie hide where there is cover.

Early morning fishing is said to be best, between 6 and 10 a.m., followed by evening fishing, around sunset and beyond. These are the cooler parts of the day, too!

Watersports at Lake Nacimiento

Contrary to what some believe, there is still enough water in Lake Nacimiento for watersports! You can enjoy wakeboarding, water skiing, surfing and more. There is even a Facebook page for this community, where you can view photos and meet others with the same interests as you. Otherwise, just take out your speed boat, or rent one, and have an adventure.

Boating at Lake Nacimiento

Even if you’re not fishing or wakeboarding in Lake Nacimiento, you can still enjoy boating around the lake! Jump off your boat and enjoy swimming in the water on a hot day. Pull a tube on the end of your boat for the kids to ride. Pack a picnic and eat it on the boat. Ride around and feel the wind in your hair. Park the boat and enjoy relaxing. Enjoy kayaking or paddle-boarding in the water for a good workout.

If you don’t want to actually be on or in the water, you can also enjoy hiking the trails around Lake Nacimiento, or lounging on the shorelines with a picnic, music, fishing line, camera, book or whatever you prefer. We also enjoy lots of events at the Oak Shores Clubhouse, so check those out regularly!

Enjoy your time spent on Lake Nacimiento, and if you’d like to make the lake a year-round adventure for you and your family or friends, contact me, your Lake Nacimiento real estate agent! I would love to help you buy a Lake Nacimiento home, so the fun never ends.

Fall Activities at Lake Nacimiento!

Lake Nacimiento Real Estate

Lake Nacimiento Fall Activities

Visiting crowds slow down as summer transitions into fall, which makes this time of year an ideal time to visit Lake Nacimiento and to buy a home on Lake Nacimiento. Local residents can swing by the lake any time of day and enjoy a quieter, more relaxing and private adventure at the lake.

As your Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I want to fill you in on some of the best activities to enjoy at Lake Nacimiento during the fall season.

Fishing at Lake Nacimiento

As temperatures start to cool off at the lake, fall becomes the best season for fishing! In the summertime, fish mostly only bite early in the morning or after dusk. But as temperatures cool, more fish will begin biting throughout the day.

In the latest Lake Nacimiento fishing report, Spotted Bass continue to be the most caught fish at the lake, followed by White Bass. Black Bass have been more elusive, but a few large ones were caught over the summer, including a 12-pound record breaker!

The best place to catch has been at the mouth of Las Tablas cove. White Bass boils have been spotted near the marina and between Snake and Dip Creek coves, as well as Las Tablas cove. Small lures are your best bet, specifically shad colored swim baits, and white or chartreuse Roostertails.

Hiking at Lake Nacimiento

The temperatures at the lake are all over the place this time of year. From low 90’s during the day, to mid-50’s after sunset, there is a great time of day for hiking, swimming, fishing, boating and everything else that you love to do at the lake.  Fall is especially beautiful for hiking at Lake Nacimiento. It has over 100 miles of designated trails through pine and oak groves, or along the lake’s 165 miles of shoreline!

Go for an early morning hike as you watch the sun come up. When you start to heat up, jump on your boat or into the water for a quick swim! On the contrary, you could take a walk around the lake in the evening, and then enjoy a picnic while watching the sunset go down as temperatures cool off.

Staycation at Lake Nacimiento

Even if you live on or near Lake Nacimiento, that doesn’t mean you can’t take a staycation! Spend a weekend camping at the lake. Leave your electronics at home and spend a night “roughing it” with dinner over the campfire, sleep in a tent, and plenty of fresh air.

If sleeping in a bed is more your style, take advantage of the two for one deal being offered at Lake Nacimiento Resort right now! Through this Thursday, Oct. 9, you can stay for one night at the resort and get a second night free.

Enjoy the fall season at Lake Nacimiento. When you’re ready to buy a Lake Nacimiento home, or to sell your Lake Nacimiento home, contact me, your Lake Nacimiento real estate agent! I’d love to help you out!
