Antero reservoir is only about twenty-five minutes west of Eleven Mile reservoir on highway 24. Antero is run by Denver Water and does not currently require any kind of a fee. This lake is fairly shallow and has experienced a lot of ups and downs over the last decade, but grows trophy fish at an incredible rate none the less! Safe ice usually begins to form around the first part of December. There are several fresh water springs in Antero that can cause unsafe ice, so be cautious! Antero is home to rainbow trout, brown trout, snake river cutthroat, green back cutthroat, cutbows, kokanee salmon, brook trout, and splake! All of these fish grow to trophy size in little time due to the incredible fertility of this lake and the plethora of scuds (freshwater shrimp). Since Antero is fairly shallow, weed growth can be an obstacle at times, but trophy fish are always there for the taking when you can find a clearing in the weeds! Antero has become very popular over the last three years and can truly be a circus at times, especially on the weekends. Always remember to be courteous of others!
