    The fishing in the lake use to be way way better then what it is today. The fishing went down hill fast after the geese trashed all the aquatic vegetation during a drought year. Now no vegetation hardly grows in the lake.

    I used to like the lake a whole lot better than now. I used to be able to take shrimp and cast off the fishing pier next to the handicapped dock by the fish cleaning station and just kill them. I have to work a whole lot harder now, but it is still a magical place that you can love. That's why they call it fishing and not 'catching'.
