I know that they have started refilling it, if you check Denver water's page it's about 30% of capacity. I had heard the rumors that they were going to enlarge it or at least dredge part of it to make it deeper and less susceptible to winter kill, but the last that I heard they didn't do anything other than their dam repair. Hopefully they will get enough runoff this spring to fill it, then the DOW will start stocking it again.
I can't wait. It will take a few years for it to be a good a fishery again, but after a few it will help restore balance to the other lakes along the way.
The pressure on ElevenMile and Spinney will take a toll.
I can't wait until antero is fishable again. By that time I will be in college somewhere in the Denver area (almost certainly the school of mines), and I will be excited to fish some of these lakes you guys talk about. I heard antero was the best out of 11 mile, spinney, and antero for trout fishing, and it allowed bait 8)
later and I hope good news is in store!
Yep, Antero was clearly the leader of the Southpark lakes. No pike though Bear...and I know your a pike guy I have shed a few tears since they drained that lake...feel one forming now as I speak of it ;D
I just checked the Denver water site, which actually had updates on Antero. It said the water level is at 99%. Hopefully they will stock and open this year. Those fish used to grow about 4-6 inches a year there.
