Antero Reservoir To Be Closed!

According to an article from Denver Water will be draining and closing Antero Reservoir this year. Antero has historically been a reservoir that is subject to high evaporation because it's so shallow, and with another drought year looming they aren't taking any chances. Slot limits will be opening to 8 fish per angler per day, and then the rest of the fish will be relocated.

The water will then be stored down river in 11 Mile and Cheesman Reservoirs. Seemingly forsaking Spinney which is rumored to be closed this year to any boat with an electric or gas powered motor. Spinney is already somewhere near 10 feet lower than it normally is, and the snow pack for the South Platte is sitting near 70 percent. Lets all pray for a wet spring. For the fish and our sake!

Here is the link to the full story.
