NW neighborhood lakes disappointing today

Went up to BL and it was really overgrown and didn't even look fishable, so I turned around and went to CL which was layered in thick algae. I've just got back into carp fishing after growing up fishing in England and have only fished CL once and was looking forward to a nice day today, but came home instead as I had to be home by lunch. Need to get find a few spots on the Slough or Columbia/Willamette before the weather turns. Any pointers welcomed, public or private!
