ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities say they rescued six anglers from an ice floe that broke away from the shore of Flaming Gorge Reservoir.

The rescue occurred Friday but wasn’t announced until Monday. No injuries were reported.

The anglers, from Wyoming and Colorado, told Sweetwater County sheriff’s deputies they started fishing at 6:30 a.m. Friday and at 9 a.m. realized they were drifting away from shore.

Four Green River Fire Department members trained in ice rescues brought the anglers to shore in a boat. A sheriff’s department release didn’t say how far the ice had drifted.

The anglers were identified as 48-year-old Dean Hunhoff and 35-year-old Kenton Taylor of Cheyenne, Bryan Cowhan and John Henley, both 36, of Brighton, Colo., 35-year-old Brian Gross of Westminster, Colo., and 34-year-old William Torres of Thornton, Colo.
