MONTROSE, Colo. (CBS4)– There is good news for the Gunnison River basin. The Cerro Reservoir is full and fishing access is now open to the public.

That’s following an upgrade to the aging infrastructure. The City of Montrose says it’s open to catch-and-release fishing flies and lures only.

A hunting and/or fishing license is required to use the area.
