Parts Are Closed Until Friday


Just so you’ll know - as paving and re-striping continue on parts of the Rocky Mountain Recreation and Public Fishing Area, portions of the area are closed through Thursday. 

Currently the beach and campground areas are closed, but will re-open Friday morning, according to the DNR. 

Fishermen can continue to use the main entrance to the area leading to East and West Antioch Lakes and the boat ramps that supply both. 

The area is scheduled to be open and operational Friday morning, May 18.

Among those having fun was Johnny Howell (above) who was busy catching catfish in the East Antioch Lake from his boat. Johnny caught fish ranging from this 1 pound 11 ounce catfish to this nice 12 pound 6 ounce catfish.
