    Does anyone know if you are allowed to fish prior to the lakes opening? The walk in gate opens earlier then the main gate. I know I need a permit but I should be able to get that the day before I'm planning on going.

    Thanks for any info you have.

    Yes the ranger opens all the gates at o600 and you can walk in and fish. You are on the honor to purchase the fishing permit from any of the rangers who will drive by. They open the gates at that time for all the walkers to walk when it is cooler. After 8 a.m. you can drive in Monday throug Thursday. I simply park out on the street and walk in. The weeds are really bad.
