Cleanup and responsibility needed at Lake Van

My sisters and I have been fishing for a while now at the lake, we are enjoying it very much, but the trash is terrible on the east bank. I take trash bags and try to pick up what I can, but a lot of it is in the water. I beg people to pick up their trash so the next person can have a clean spot when they fish. I wish you could do something about it. We love having the lake to fish, or get together.
