ABERDEEN, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks is restocking fish in Lake Monroe in north Mississippi.

The lake, located near Aberdeen, was closed in February of 2014 and drained to allow for repairs to fishing piers, the boat ramp and the water level control structure.

About 2,500 Florida-strain largemouth bass were recently released into the lake.

Wildlife biologists say bluegill, redear sunfish, channel catfish, crappie and grass carp will also be stocked in the lake.

Lake Monroe remains closed to the public.

Lake Monroe was built in 1954, making it one of the oldest state lakes managed by the wildlife agency.
