APOLLO PARK LAKE: Sergio Gonzales, Sylmar, won the 2017 Fall Classic Fishing Derby held two weekends ago with a six-pound, nine-ounce rainbow. Ed Moehle Jr, Palmdale, was second with a 5-14, while Leovigildo Onofre, San Fernando, was third with a 5-1. The remaining seven spots in the top 10 all were trout from 1-8 to 1-14. There were 318 participants and 57 fish were weighed in. The lake was planted with both DFW trout and 1,500 pounds of Calaveras hatchery fish, including 500 pounds of trophy rainbows to 16 pounds for this event. The lake is one a twice-monthly planting scheduled for this season. For more information, contact Apollo Park at 661-940-7701 or Amaysing Fishing Bait & Tackle at 661-429-5824.

QUAIL LAKE: The stripers continue to boil on shad, and there has been fair to good action for both stripers and catfish. Most anglers are throwing shad, fresh-dead or alive, and shad-like lures and swimbaits tossed to the boils. The bluegill bite is also still pretty fair near the reeds on nightcrawlers under a bobber.
