BRUSH, Colo. (AP) – Unlimited fishing is being allowed at a reservoir in northeast Colorado where water levels have dropped sharply because of severe drought.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials said Tuesday that the fish at Jumbo Reservoir are struggling to survive and it’s better to let fishermen have them instead of letting them die.

No commercial fishing will be allowed and all anglers must have a valid Colorado fishing license.
