Later the same day while approaching two adult anglers who were fishing from shore and drinking beer, at a remote state forest area lake, the two anglers tossed their beer cans in the lake. The two said they panicked because they thought it was illegal to drink beer in the state forest. They were informed having a beer was OK but throwing garbage into the lake was a bit of a problem.
