SANTA ANA RIVER LAKES: The best trout of the season was a 17-3 caught this past week by Steve Vasquez, Anaheim, on an orange and white MiceTail. Rick Kizee, Los Angeles, had an 8-8 rainbow on a Power Worm, while Chris Moss, Anaheim, landed a 6-8 on yellow corn PowerBait. Overall, fair trout action with most anglers getting a least one or two fish, and some getting full stringers of rainbows from one to three pounds. Trout plants are weekly, and trophy fish are part of each plant. Information: 714-632-7851 or log on at fishinglakes.com.
