LAKE HEMET: The trout bite remains fair to good, and DFG plants went in this week and two weeks ago. Most anglers fishing from shore are casting spinners or small tube baits, and bait anglers are fishing PowerBait. Best trolling action has been from the point east to the marina. Bluegill, bass, catfish and carp are all slow. Carp bowfishing is allowed Monday through Thursday but bowfishermen must check in first. Lake open daily from 7 a.m.-10 p.m. Boat inspections for quagga mussels are $7 and banding is $3. Half-price boat rentals weekdays.

LAKE FULMORE: DFG trout plant last week at Lake Fulmore and nearby Strawberry Creek. These were the first plants at both of these waters this season. Information: (951) 659-2117.
