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!!!

- Bait(Trout Magnets and Krill)
- Camera(You will need proof of that monster fish!)
