About Liberty Reservoir
Liberty Reservoir, also known as Liberty Lake, is located in the Liberty River Basin, a basin that includes parts of Baltimore and Carroll counties in Maryland, USA.
The Melville family bought the land from the city of Baltimore to use it for public water. This was the largest land purchase in the state's history at the time, and the area was the site of Melley's wool mill.
When the city built the dam, the entire mill town, including the factory, remained intact, but was flooded to create the reservoir, and flooded again in the 1930s. Today, Liberty Lake collects water from a 163-square-mile sewage basin that includes the Baltimore River, Baltimore's main source of drinking water, and the Chesapeake Bay. Water from this reservoir flows into the Delaware River before reaching Baltimore, where it flows into the Atlantic.
If you are an experienced angler, you will appreciate the quality of the fish at Liberty Reservoir. If you are a beginner, you will love Liberty Lake for its great fishing and scenic views, as well as its beautiful scenery.
The reservoir supplies water to the Baltimore suburbs, meaning that the quality of fish in Liberty is high. The battery-powered, paddle-powered motor can be paddled from Liberty Reservoir to Liberty Lake in less than an hour.
White krappie and perch are the most popular warm water fish and often reach trophy size. The reservoir is used by the inhabitants and visitors of the region for recreational fishing, fishing and boating.
For nature lovers, there is plenty to see at Liberty Reservoir, such as the Great Blue Egret, Blue Egret, White Croon Bass and Striped Perch.
