8 Fish Limit with No Size Requirements! Beautiful 360° Views. Sleep Under The Stars At One Of The 38 Campsites Available.

The Antero Reservoir was the first dam built on the South Platte River. The reservoir is best known for its large rainbow trout and rainbow x cutthroat hybrid trout. It's also home to brown trout, snake river cutthroat trout, cutthroat trout, brook trout, and splake.

The earth filled Antero Dam was made in 1909. There are repairs scheduled starting in the summer of 2015 and should be back to normal late 2018. Since they are planning to drain the dam, the limit has been raised from 2 to 8 fish and there are no size restrictions.

Although I'm not typically a huge fish fan, these were really good!!!
