It most likely is a result of the guy who drowned there back in July. Everyone gets punished for one person not following the rules and having having a tragic outcome. They are trying to restrict access to the water, everyone must stay back 100 feet or be fined $1000. This would make it kind of hard to fish, thus why I posted here.
Hi Everyone, New to the forums, but wanted to share / warn that Somerset County Park Commission is voting on 8/12 to possibly close access to Washington Valley Reservoir. Not sure if it will make a difference or not, but my Mountain Biking (www.mtbnj.com) friends have setup a petition against the vote. http://chng.it/JPDghpb4BR
