KINGMAN - The Lake Mead National Recreational Area has finished making repairs at the South Cove launch ramp and area anglers are saying that it's a great improvement over what it had been.

Personnel from the LMNRA worked on the launch ramp last week after complaints from area anglers and Mohave County Supervisor Jean Bishop, and had the work completed by last Friday. It is recommended that anglers use 4x4 vehicles when launching or retrieving watercraft.
