I stopped by English Ranch during the last warm spell to see if any water had opened up, but all I found was a bunch of ice and a new community garden not 10 feet from the shore line. I'm not a biologist, but I can't help but feel like the runoff from this new garden will spell disaster for the fishery here.
I fished here when I was a kid right after they first built the park and now I get to enjoy fishing here with my fiancee and daughter. There aren't any fish of real size here, but the overpopulated crappies and bluegill never fail to cooperate. We see many families and children fishing here and it would be a real shame to see the fishery destroyed.
