Not If You Live In Lake Ridge Fishing on th Occoquan Reservoir

One of the outstanding features of Lake Ridge is the recreational opportunities we enjoy living along the shores of the 2,100 acre Occoquan Reservoir, home of the Lake Ridge Park and Marina. As you can see above, winter weather does not affect "real" bass fisherman since the marina is open all year long. Lake Ridge Marina Operating Hours. The video below highlights the many features of Lake Ridge Park and Marina.



The Complete Lake Ridge Story





 

COMMUTING
  • Express bus service to the Pentagon and Washington, DC is available within Lake Ridge and at the entrance to Lake Ridge in the VDOT Commuter Lot
  • Carpools usually meet at the VDOT Commuter Lot at the entrance to Lake Ridge - see Omnimatch for more specific details
  • Slugging (some erroneously call it hitching a ride which it is) is a result of the need to use HOV lanes on the I-95 as much as possible. Commuters form a line at a designated Slug Line Stop in Lake Ridge - the VDOT Commuter at the Lake Ridge entrance. For example, a driver will pull up headed for the Pentagon, but needs one more passenger to qualify for HOV-3. The first person in line going to the Pentagon will join the others in the car and away they go. It's free commuting for the slugger and gives the driver availability to HOV lanes on I-95 - win win!!
  • Train The Virginia Railway Express Woodbridge Station with rail service to Springfield, Crystal City and Union Station in Washington, DC is approximately a 20 minute drive from Lake Ridge in the morning rush hour.
  • At Springfield you can switch to Metrorail that gives you access to the entire National Capital Area subway system.
  • Local buses run regulary throughout the Greater Woodbridge area as well as other areas of Prince William County. Lake Ridge is one of the communities served by Omnilink
  • MCB Quantico is less than 30 minutes by car
  • Fort Belvoir is approximately 30 minutes by car
  • Prince William County Commuting VIDEO
SCHOOLS

One of the popular features about Lake Ridge is that all schools attended by Lake Ridge children are in Lake Ridge. No elementary school is more than 5 or 6 minutes from the student's home



LIBRARIES
SHOPPING
  • Tacketts Mill located at the entrance to Lake Ridge was the first of the three centers. In addition to the normal complement of retail stores it includes commercial office space. It's here you'll find McDonald's, Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin Robbins
  • Lake Ridge Commons atOld Bridge Road and Hedges Run Drive is about midway through Lake Ridge. It has our one and only Starbucks
  • Festival at Old Bridge is also on Old Bridge Road near the western end of Lake Ridge at Smoketown Road. It has the Lake Ridge US Post Office Annex

Karen, I'm not a fisherman but that lake scene seems so peaceful. I know lots of people who remark on how nice it is to go on the water and just spend some time fishing to relax. Your lake seems like a great place to take advantage of that past time.

....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless!

Good morning Karen,

Growing up in the North, I remember (and loved) going ice fishing.  Nothing stops a true fisherman!

Sounds like quite a spot.  May be a little chilly for winter fishing though.
