I may join you, since it's a published WDFW access and all.

https://wdfw.wa.gov/lands/water_access/30503/

Not really, but please do us all a favor and utilize it as much as possible!

If you get pinged again, ask them if a fishing license is needed to fish the lake??... I wonder if they will stumble around on that one.   Additionally, you can bring this into play: RCW 77.15.210 Obstructing the taking of fish, shellfish, or wildlife - Penalty is a gross misdemeanor and or jail time. :tup:

I think I need to go cast some big trout imitation baits since they have been providing protein supplements for the bass.  Sounds like a fine thing to do on a nice afternoon. :IBCOOL:
May that for which I prepare never come to pass.

Fish it, when they show up again have all the info.  They won’t keep coming over on bogus calls after that.

We have 20 acres on a lake in the Okanogan with 150 feet of waterfront. The WDFW stocked the lake and WE gave them public access for fishing. If you didn't know where the access was, well, you were screwed. The WDFW stopped stocking it and we took away the public access.
I could care less about what anybody says..............

Know any lawyers that like fishing?

Do the hunter harassment laws cover fishermen too?

Fish it as much as possible and make sure to smile and wave and the "lake manager" as often as you can.

I would go fish it every possible chance. It makes me want to go fish it too, this is so aggrivating. We did something similar when i was a kid. For my birthday, we would shoot clay pigeons. The issue was that the no shooting zone was the road in front of the house, and we shot in the back yard. Every year dad would look forward to the "tough guy cop" showing up to tell us we were illegal. He would hand them the shooting zone map, and say thanks for stopping by. When they realized we were legal and knew what we were talking about, their attitude usually changed to "I'd sure like to shoot a few clays with you"

It's REALLY important for sportsmen to use our access point or risk losing them.  When the Wenatchee River was closed to fishing for 10 years, lots of encroachments occurred on OUR accesses and nobody was there to contest them.  It's several years after fishing has reopened on a periodic basis, and some of the encroachment issues still are not resolved. 
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

I have been to Lake Connor Park numerous times because I have friends who have a place there.  Yes, there has always been the public access outside the park too.  Since this is a public lake with WDFW access and advertised as such on the WDFW website, wouldn't all state rules apply?  When I have been there numerous times adults are fishing and they say they don't have a license and don't need one.  I have actually asked and everyone there claims that they were informed from the office that adults don't need a license. When I asked at the office last year the office actually said they own the lake and that a license is not needed.  I never would fish it myself because I'm just visiting, but for bass it actually looks fun to try.  Maybe it would be worthy to have a LEO out once in a while to make sure all people who are of age should have a fish license.  I think it works both ways on this one due to the fact it is listed with a public access.
