Antero Ice Fishing Report: the lake is capped, but use caution!

Antero Ice Fishing Report-

Antero Reservoir, in South Park Colorado, has fully capped!  The lake has been capped since November 27, and the ice thickness is running 2-5″ thick.  Use extreme caution as different parts of the lake froze at different times!  Using a spud bar to check every step is HIGHLY recommended as well as having a rope, throwable floatation device, ice picks, and fishing with a partner.  


The Ice Fishing has been good so far with depths of 4-12′ consistently producing activity!  Small spoons like the PK Flutter Fish have been working well in low light periods when the fish are aggressive, while smaller ice jigs dead sticked have been producing fish more consistently throughout the entire day.  Pinks, whites, oranges, greens, and some natural colors have all been working.  Be sure to tip your jig with a mealworm, wax worm, earthworm, or piece of shrimp!  


If you don’t seem to be marking fish, be sure to move, even if it’s only 20′ away as sometimes a small move can make a big difference!  We’ve been catching a mix of rainbow trout, cutbows, and brown trout, but there is always a possibility of catching a brook trout, splake, cutthroat, or even a tiger musky in this lake!
