Lake: Antero Reservoir

Boating on Antero

Post By: Wacokid57      Posted: 8/19/2019 8:31:19 AM     Points: 11    
Hello everyone. I am headed to Antero Wednesday with my 14ft 9.9 HP boat in tow. My daughter and i will be fishing with both fly and spinning gear. I have float tubed that lake many times, but never fished it from a boat. Is the north ramp better protected from the wind? I know the weeds will be bad. Is there an area of the lake I should head to , to avoid the worst of the weeds? last but not least, should I put a lot of tilt on the motor to try to keep it up out of the weeds? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

South ramp has a jetty to protect the ramp and dock. Get to deep water and come back to the weed edge's. Fish along the edge's.

North ramp is closed Mon thru Weds. Weeds aren't so bad that you have to worry motor tilt. They won't be any different from a boat that they were from a float tube.
Green Lake Bay (NW corner) has fewer weeds, but also is slower action right now. Ditto the dam area.
