Fishing and Kayaking in the LA River?
The Los Angeles River has appeared shallow and has been surrounded by concrete since the 1930s, but change is afoot.
Starting this May, there is a chance you may find kayaking, fishing, bird watching and boat launching in the Los Angeles River.
The L.A. River department will open a portion of the river - the Glendale Narrows - to recreation.
The summer project will operate as a pilot for the L.A. River plan, a revitalization effort targeting 11 of the river's 51-mile stretch.
Part of the LA River plan calls for replacing the 6th Street Bridge with a modern structure, surrounded by parks and bike paths.
The cost for the L.A. River Plan is estimated at just over one billion dollars, paid for by state and local government.
