Rodman Reservoir and Rodman Dam

Betrice Enoch of Gainesville, who had a cooler full of fish, shows off two Bluegills she caught as she fishes in the spillway of Rodman Reservoir on top of the Rodman Dam near Palatka, Fla. on Monday, July 20, 2020. The dam was built as part of the aborted Cross-Florida Barge Canal system in 1968 and created the 9,000-acre Rodman Reservoir. Over the years, numerous environmentalists, including Marjorie Harris Carr, have said that the construction of the dam has completely closed off the flow of the Ocklawaha River.
