Anglers break rules and go fishing at Lake View Promenade

Anglers break rules and go fishing at Lake View Promenade
No fishing is allowed at Lake View Promenade, but nobody seems to care, says STOMPer Fisherman.

In an email to STOMP today (Jul 5), the STOMPer says:

"These pictures were taken at Lake View Promenade beside the Jurong Lake, just opposite the Jurong Country Club.

"The notice says 'SWIMMING, FISHING AND ANY WATER RELATED ACTIVITIES ARE NOT ALLOWED'.

"Last Sunday, when I visited the park I was surprised to see a big crowd of anglers fishing at the pier beside the lake.

"This causes pollution of our waters as these anglers use live baits.

"Perhaps PUB should send its wardens to visit this place on weekends."

manutd_800: I'm sorry, but are you typing in English? I'm finding it very hard to understand what you're trying to tell me.

Fishing at the jetty may be legal, I'm just reposting what was posted on STOMP.
