Angry Fishing SPOTS?!!!!

why did they block off the back area of the lake by the bathrooms when first enter going towards the beach area with big mounds of dirt? and you cant fish over there by the tower on your right cause that sign says restricted area...who makes these decisions? and how is this lake gonna get better if they block off all the good fishing spots?!!! anybody else have any opinions or anything?

Unless something has changed in the last week, the green line on the map below shows an unblocked dirt road that will get you to the shoreline along the spillway. Just drive down to the swimming beach and turn left. The turn and road is obvious once you get to the beach area.

The City Manager makes those decisions, with the approval of the City Commissioners.

I don't know why the old road along the golf course, leading to the area west of the swimming beach was blocked. As far as I know one can still walk to those fishing spots using the shoreline or the old paths.

The paved road, a quarter mile north of the swim beach, that crosses the spillway flood channel was blocked to stop a few people who were tearing up the flood channel below the spillway wall with 4 wheel drive vehicles.

The 200 foot exclusion zone around the water intake tower dates back to when the tower was used to draw water for Sweetwater. The tower is no longer used to draw water but the zone remains. I doubt that anyone would be ticketed for fishing in that zone from the shore. Heck, I don't know who would even be out there to write such a ticket. There is no lake keeper. The city police don't go out there. I doubt that the Sheriff would enforce a city regulation. The game warden, maybe, if you put a boat past the marker buoys.

I see people fishing all the time along the shoreline from the intake tower south to the swim beach, as well as from the swim beach west along the golf course shoreline.
