City cops showed up today and said fishing is not allowed per the states stay at home order. It cleared out pretty quick but they’re we’re certainly some folks questioning it

Makes no sense at all. it's no different than getting out for a walk or hike. I'm still going fishing. They can come find me.

I wonder if there was more to it than just kicking people off the Lake, were people in big groups or something like that?

There were some groups , not more than 3 or 4 that I saw. I was on a kayak so not really that tuned in to what was happening on shore. Again, this was just an FYI. The cops themselves are still trying to figure this out

Come on out to our lakes in Arapahoe County I can guarantee if you are not fishing in groups you will be fine!!!! Our lakes are open to fish!!! The only lakes that might be different are Aurora Res and Quincy Res they are managed by The City of Aurora.

It looks like they are putting up a gate to keep people out.

Starting to happen everywhere! It’s a snowball effect since clear creek took the initiative to start shutting everything down. Funny how this started happening after everyone got a new fishing licenses for the year.

That's what happens when you have houses owned by out of state busy bodies built practically right on the shoreline. I'm sure there were many calls made to local law enforcement regardless if the person calling was in the right or not. The local LEO's probably flat out got tired of the phone calls. It's a roundabout way of getting the peace and quiet they thought they'd paid for when they bought their lakefront property. I hadn't been there for a year or so , but I went prior to the China virus hitting CO, and I couldn't hardly believe how much it changed up there. It was kind of sad, really.
