Lake: Antero Reservoir

Ice update

Post By: HepDawg69      Posted: 1/24/2022 12:28:55 PM     Points: 20    
Wondering how the ice is at Antero? Last I saw was some open water on the north end of the lake. Is that frozen now? What's the approximate ice thickness where you've drilled?

How's the fishing been this year? Wanting to take my grandpa to Antero, he hasn't been ice fishing in several years. Any info is appreciated.

Went last Thursday, ice was 15"+/-. Weather was way too nice for Antero. Fish were not interested. Not many people out there at all.

Iím hearing the bite has been really slow at both Antero and 11-Mile. My guess is that folks donít want to put in the effort if they canít easily catch fish! Thatís OKÖthins out the crowds! Lol

I was there today. The lake appeared to be fully frozen. It's also under a good blanket of snow especially after the snowstorm today. No crampons needed! I also observed 15" where I drilled my holes. And as others have mentioned the bite was especially slow, a far cry from the action I normally see in my usual spot.
