Lake Murray

Lake Murray is a beautiful, 198-acre reservoir built in 1916 after San Diego’s great floods. The 117-foot dam was named for James Murray, a Montana engineer who directed the building of this dam. It is also a wonderful park that offers walking trails, fishing including large mouth bass, bluegill, catfish, carp and rainbow trout.  Photo Courtesy of SD Jewish World

Safeguarding the Reservoir
