Do Not Fish in Green Lake With a Crossbow

June 14, 2016 10:19am

We are going to go ahead and file this under one of the weirder happenings at Green Lake.

We received photos of a man with a crossbow in Green Lake that appeared to be fishing with the help of said crossbow.

So we thought it would be a good time to make a little PSA:
1. It is illegal to discharge or use a bow and arrow/cross bow in Seattle Parks. More on that here. If you see anyone with one, you are encouraged to dial 9-11 immediately.
2. To fish in the lake you need a license, which you can get here.
3. Fishing poles work pretty darn well and are a lot less alarming to fellow parkgoers.
