This is a very unfortunate event. But, this goes to show that people have got to be extremely careful when trying to retrieve things from bodies of water. I think this is probably why the parks department had a problem with people retrieving their discs from the lake.
Hopefully all these issues will be resolved. The parks department should also take into account that this unfortunate event happened to a fisherman and not a disc golfer. The holes that were set up around the lake were arguably the best holes on the course.
It is never a good thing to see baskets get pulled from any park. Like Chris K. said, a lot of hard work and volunteerism goes into getting a course installed and it would be a shame to see all that hard work go to waste.
