SALTILLO, Miss. (WCBI) — The fish are growing bigger but anxious anglers will have to wait another two years before reeling them in.

Restoration of the dam at popular Lake Lamar Bruce in Saltillo was completed late last year, but managers say it’ll be May 2015 before the lake opens.

It has been stocked with a variety of bass, bream and catfish but state wildlife officials are monitoring their progress and the rest of the lake’s habitat before opening it up to public use.
