Untapped Resource

Took my first walk around Hollywood Reservoir today. It is a beautiful place that the DWP won’t let anyone near. You can’t get close to it, let alone fish it or swim it. You can only walk around most of the road that surrounds it from above … Lake Hollywood Drive. But, with all that water, and at 183′ deep, you know it has to be holding some large Largemouth Bass. Sorry about the picture quality. I only had my cell phone with me:

These next two shots are taken through the barbed-wire fence that surrounds the lake:

Great view of the H-wood sign from the top of the dam:

Now, if I could only figure out a way to haul a huge fish up 750′!  

Back in the day, this was one of the DWP’s main sources of drinking water for the city. So, protecting it was understandable. But, now, they tap the Colorado river for most of their needs. Plus, so many other drinking water reservoirs in Southern Cal are fishing-allowed impoundments … why can’t this one be available, too?
