Antero to be Drained!!!

Antero Reservoir is going to be drained again in 2015 so that dam work can be done again. Antero is one of the most productive reservoirs in the area producing lots of really large fish every year. This is the 3rd time the reservoir has been drained over the last 25 years. I usually takes 4-7 years for the reservoir to refill and the fisheries to come back. The Division of Parks and Wildlife has increased the limit on fish to 8 with no size restrictions in an effort to remove as many fish as possible before the lake goes dry. A great opportunity to catch and harvest some really nice fish, but a sad day for the fisheries.
