Northern Los Angeles county is home to several new wineries producing top-quality, award-winning wines.

The lake is stocked with a wide variety of fish such as bass, trout and catfish, enough to make any angler content. There are actually two bodies of water at the facility. The upper lake is used for sailing, power boating, jet skiing and fishing. There are boat rentals and a tackle shop on site. The lower lake is reserved for non-power boating, canoeing and swimming.
Anyone who has ever tried it will tell you that starting your own business is a scary proposition. Most waged their own private war with doubt. Am I doing the right thing?
