Access Cunningham before 8am

Is it possible/legal to access Lake Cunningham before 8:00am? I know that the park (like most parks) doesn't officially open until 8:00 (which generally means that that's when the parking lot opens). But, is it possible/legal to park on the street nearby at dawn and walk in and fish? Will I get hassled? I usually do this at some of the county park lakes in south SJ and Morgan Hill, but I was just wondering if this city park is stricter about this.

Call up the park theyll let you know. Don't waste your time. The fishing is absolutely horrible there.
^^^^ What he said. Place is so thick with green alge not sure how the Trout servive.
