Antero Ice Fishing Report:
The ice fishing remains steady on Antero reservoir. Ice is 12-20″ thick across the reservoir with 3-6″ of snow. The trout are starting to get in pre-spawn mode and there has been a push of more fish cruising the shorelines. Some anglers have complained of slow fishing. Part of this might be the fact that some of our guides report having spitting up mouths full of minnows! Dead sticking has been the top producing technique, but jigging a small spoon or tube jig to mimic a minnow can be deadly during low light hours! Color varies daily, but putting out a combination of pinks, oranges, greens, and whites, usually produces some kind of pattern to follow. Small tungsten jigs, tube jigs, ratsos, rat finkes, and kastmasters have all been producing. Be sure to tip your lure with a meal worm, wax worm, earth worm, or piece of raw shrimp!
Antero reservoir, located in South Park Colorado, holds a variety of species including: rainbow trout, brown trout, cut-bow trout, cutthroat trout, splake, brook trout, and tiger musky!
