Me too. The fishing was the best I have ever had when they used to let people on the piers. I was lucky enough to be a quick drive away and fish every weekend. Met people who came as far as Houston! Anytime they had less than 3 gates open you could fish it 24/7. I fish on the other side of the dam in a boat now, but I would fish the piers in a heart beat if the @##@$#%$#%*&^!! Tarrant County Water District would let people fish it again! I cuss them everytime I pass by!
