Fishing at Liberty Reservoir

I may have mentioned that my son and I are having a contest to see who can catch the most different kinds of fish this year.  He's ahead of me by a few fish.  One fish that neither of us have ever caught is a carp.  Our neighbor caught one at Liberty Reservoir last month, so my son decided that we were going there yesterday.

We fished underneath the Route 32 bridge that crosses over the Liberty Reservoir.  The bad news is that we didn't catch any carp.  The good news is that it was really pretty.  The other news is that it was REALLY loud under there.  That bridge shakes and pounds and creeks when every car goes over it.  When multiple cars and a big truck go over-top  you can't even talk to each other it's so loud.

Here's our view looking west under the bridge.  The leaves are starting to be painted with their fall colors.  The water was as smooth as glass creating this awesome reflection.

I took a picture of this bridge back in 1902.  Just kidding, the bridge didn't exist back then.  I think it was built in the 1950's.  I love black and white pictures.

Here's a picture slightly to the east of the bridge.  The picture doesn't do it justice, but the road is probably 40-50 feet off of the water.

And this is not related at all, but did anyone else catch the United States Navy blimp flying over Eldersburg last week?  There ain't no Navy in Carroll County.

I saw the blimp over my house on Streaker Road - pretty cool!
