The Road to the Parker Lake Trailhead is dirt, but it's still easy for 2WD assuming dry weather. It's about a 1-1.5 mile hiking trail to the lake. You can pull brookies out of there quite easily with both bait and fly.
For Lundy, on the far side (West side) there's a small resort area and I've never fished on that side; most folks launch their boats on that side. The dam side on the east is where most folks park and walk a few yards over to fish near the dam. It's almost always windy there, but the fishing is similar to Convict Lake, if you've ever been there. I'm pretty sure you can launch your kayak from anywhere on the lake.
Haven't been to Ellery and Saddlebag in ages. Last time I was at Saddlebag was about 15 years ago, and it was kind of crowded -- seemed to be getting popular among the backpacker crowd. Pulled out a few brookies, and the high alpine enviorns up there are really nice to look at.
Virginia Lakes in July through the late season is fun for float tubing. From the shore you can usually pull out decent rainbows anywhere you see deep pockets from the trail. If you bring your kayak/canoe, it's an easy launch from the trailhead.
