Around 3 a.m. on Sunday, September 2nd, park dispatch received an emergency call reporting that a man had disappeared while attempting to recover his fishing lure from the lake at Temple Bar. Rangers began a search for the victim, a 49-year-old man who’d been fishing from shore in the Temple Bar Marina area when his fishing lure became snagged on some vegetation. After several attempts to release it from the shore, he entered the water to free it. A short time later, witnesses reported hearing calls for help, splashing, then silence. Rangers found and recovered his body from about six feet of water.
