LAKE HEMET: The trout bite has been good, and DFG plants went in last week and three weeks ago. Most anglers fishing from shore are casting spinners or small tube baits, and bait anglers are fishing Power Bait. 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.
