Like PowerLizard said, it is very accessible. The water is getting further from the gate every day though.
Someone is bank fishing almost every time I'm out there, I'm guessing they walk down the bike trail.
There are a few guys around here who put in there regularly. My wife and I get out that way every once in awhile, but haven't had much luck putting in there when targeting white bass.
Just watch out for snakes while you're out there.
