Steve Killian, superintendent of Cooper Lake State Park, says recent rains have raised the level of Cooper Lake from about five feet low to only about two feet low.

And Steve says the fishing at the lake has been excellent, as seen by the photo accompanying this story. Many spring programs are scheduled at the park, including the popular "Skins and Skulls" programs on the animals that are native to the park, at 10 a.m. Saturday (May 7) at the Doctors Creek unit of the park and at 2 p.m. Saturday (May 7) at the South Sulphur Unit.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
