AGATE - The trophy trout stocked this fall are few and far between. Bass and crappie fishing is slow amid very cold water conditions.
APPLEGATE - Water levels are low enough that there is no boat access at the lake now. That has severely curbed fishing effort, as has snow and cold weather.
EXPO - Fishing for bluegill is very slow.
EMIGRANT - Trout fishing has tapered way off and was fair amid cold water temperatures. A health advisory has been issued about eating all but trout from the lake because of elevated mercury levels.
FISH - Both bank and boat anglers have done fair recently for trout despite cold weather conditions. Snow is expected this weekend. The Forest Service boat ramp is usable until it becomes blocked by snow.
TENMILE - Largemouth bass fishing is slowing down amid cold and wet weather. The bass are moving into deeper waters, especially around structure.
LOST CREEK - A public-health advisory issued more than two months ago remains in effect due to a bloom of toxic blue-green algae. People and pets are advised, but not required, to steer clear of the water until further notice.
WILLOW - The resort and boat ramp are closed for the season.
