Be aware that there is a TON of POINSON OAK at Freeway Lakes...especially in the lake that you have to access by going under the Freeway! But that lake, farthest west, is the best of the 3 lakes for bass.Try Freeway Lakes/ Oak Creek south of Albany. Your kayak will get you away from the bank fishing spots. There is the lake in Lebanon, an old mill pond in a park, can't think of the name now. It has bass. If you head up past Sweet Home you have Detroit and Green Peter Reservoirs which have bass, access, plus all kinds of other fish. I go up that way with my kayak a couple of times a year mainly for kokanee.
