    Default Harveston closed to fishing

    Have not fished here since late October, went there today and saw no fishing signs.
    This is the reasons why

    In response to concerns from residents and City maintenance personnel, the City is re-evaluating our enforcement policy and associated health and safety concerns. These concerns are in addition to the damage to landscape and equipment that have arisen over the years, which includes the following:

    •Harveston Lake is filled with reclaimed water;
    •the City never stocked the lakes and does not intend to;
    •animal wildlife (fish, ducks, turtles, birds, and domestic pets) are affected by debris, hooks left in and around the shoreline, and casting dangers to citizens;
    •damage and destruction to the surrounding landscape including pollution, hooks, fishing line, and trash being left behind; and
    •damage and destruction to the pumps and Harveston Boat House equipment.

    The ‘No Fishing’ signage will remain until we discuss this item further at the January 8, 2018 Community Services Commission Meeting which begins at 6:00 pm for the community to share concerns.

    This is why we can't have anything nice. Always lazy, disgusting people leaving their trash everywhere to ruin it for the ones that don't.

    They also close the Duck Pond to fishing which was next to Pat and Oscars.
    Two great places to take kids fishing will be two great places for illegal fishermen.

    I have never fished the Duck Pond. I walked around
    it a couple of months ago and some guys were catching
    some healthy looking bass.
