10/24/14 Went to lake Van at 7:30 pm we got there casted in our line me and wife. We seen had seen two fish floating in the water, we said to each other someone must had throw crazy reson them back into the water. A old timer stopped by and said there is no fish they had all died your waiting your time algae had killed them sure enough we drove around the lake and crap load of fish floating near the shore. My problem is why isn\'t it posted when you go pay your dues at the office. At least post some kind of sign \"No fishing\"!There just taking our money. It\'s been like this since Sunday of last week. What a shame

Lake Van Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
