Pine Lake Park - No fishing on Opening Day!
Pine Lake Park may not be open to the public until June 5 or June 12, 2004 due to the $1 million renovation of the park site according to the State Department of Fish and Wildlife.
"There is an article in both the Review and the Press which state the facts, (however they may have failed to mention that if the lake is stocked later in the season there is a greater chance of fish dying from the shock of higher temperatures.) This may cause a problem with water quality. There is no simple solution. People want to fish, but the contractor of Pine Lake Park cannot allow, for insurance reasons, intrusions into the park at this time. And if they stock the lake now, only the people who live here will be able to catch fish, and others won't think that is fair. Nothing is ever simple.
