County works in mysterious ways. I was glad to hear ODF&W planted fish in Johnson Pond. However, I was not glad when I drove over to Coquille and found the gate locked. So I called the Parks Department at Coquille and was told the gate will not be opened 'til May. What good is it to stock a lake then close it off to public access? Many elderly people are unable to walk the 1/2-mile of gravel road to fish at the lake. Took me three days to get an answer from the Parks Admin.
