High water recedes, Lake Isabel pier finally open
For the past few years, anglers have been able to cast their lines into the calm water of Lake Isabel from the comfort of a fishing pier. This summer, however, the pier was missing for much of the season and was only installed about three weeks ago.
Staff in the city's Parks and Recreation Department struggled all season to get the pier in place, said Parks and Recreation Director Barry Bernstein. It was a matter of high water that kept them from installing the pier, he said.
