We did it! Thanks to all the hard work of all those involved and everyone that signed the petition, the reservoir will be re-opened this summer!
This is a temporary opening, but it means we get to use the reservoir and it means that Loudoun Water and the Loudoun BOS heard us!

Great post — Thanks.
Does anyone know if VA Fish and Game will stock the reservoir ?
Good news. Love the drone pics. Hopefully the fish made it through the winter?
Does anyone know how slowly (or fast) the reservoir was drained? If slowly over a period of days or weeks then I will be optimistic about the fishing.
Ray, it was over a week or so. They also left as much water as they could to preserve the fish there. I believe DGIF was supposed to do some shock tests, but you may want to check out the pacemaker fishing forum for more details.
Wow !!!!! Thats such a shame. Was a great fishing spot. Hard to believe one of the richest counties couldnt of done a better job of preserving the fishery. Idiots
Does anyone know if there has been or will be any talk of allowing electric motor powered watercraft on the reservoir? For example, a jon boat with a trolling motor.
