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.

Thanks,
Joe
Call up the park theyll let you know. Don't waste your time. The fishing is absolutely horrible there.
