APOLLO PARK LAKE: The trout bite was good for the weekend derby with a lot of trout reported including a few limits and some rainbows to six pounds. The bite has been best on pink or bubble gum Mice Tails in the XXX garlic blood bait or some other garlic additive. The front lake has been fair, but the best action has been on the back lake in the deeper water. Most of the trout are one to three pounds. County plants are 1,500 pounds each stock with 250 pounds trophy fish from three to eight pounds, and plants are twice a month.

LAKE PALMDALE: Another trout plant this week with good action off the docks on PowerBait, but the jig bite slowed. Most of the fish have been in the one-pound range with a few bigger.

QUAIL LAKE: Very cold and windy this week, but even the die-hard regulars found very tough fishing with very few catfish.

CALIFORNIA AQUEDUCT (Little Rock to Quail Lake stretch): The cold weather the past three weeks has really slowed down the bite with very few reports along the whole length of the aqueduct. For updated information, call Amaysing Fishing Bait & Tackle at 661-429-5824.
