Default Antero tiger muskies?

Just read over on FXR about rumors of stocking tiger muskies into Antero since they have not been able to control sucker numbers this past decade. Anyone know if there is an ounce of truth to this?? Or does anyone have any other details like if they have stocked trout yet or when it may open? Definitely intrigued by the possibilities of TMs there, but it doesn't seem like Colorado stocks them in big enough numbers in most lakes compared to other states to make them worth targeting.

I have doubts that Denver water would allow it. I know that years ago they said if one pike was proved to be caught there, they would close the lake to fishing

Why would they care what species are in there though? Denver Water owns Eleven Mile and Cheesman and they have pike. I don't think they can tell CPW how to manage it if they lease it to them to as a fishery. Still sounds unlikely regardless. I just have been hoping that Colorado would see the success stories from Utah, New Mexico, and Idaho about aggressive tiger muskie stocking and maybe follow along.

It's the same as what was going on at Harvey gap. Whoever owns the lake has the authority cause technically they own the water. If they say no Muskie and CPW puts them in them they can close the lake to everything if they wanted.
At Harvey they said the dam needs work were draining it, get ur fish out best you can. It's just the way it is, I'm not sure why they would care what species was in it unless the head honcho wants trout only cause he hates pike. Maybe the group has agreements of what kind of fishery each is to benefit everyone on the board who knows.

Denver Water owns water in Gross and it has muskies. The water agencies don't give two shits about what fish are in there. Their primary responsibility is to supply water to its customers. Yes, I understand water drainages and species integration, but tigers will never be an environmental issue as they are sterile.

Why are suckers so much more of a problem there than spinney or the mile? Is it the lack of species like pike or muskie?

Shallow and weedy and no pike to keep them in check.

It's amazing to me how many top notch fishing lakes have pike in them. Gotta be something to that. Maybe someone will cotton on....
