Well, it looks like its a wrap on stillwater season in South Park. First and foremost, There is some ice forming on the shoreliines at Antero. With the forecasted weather this week, we will likely see more ice form.
If you do venture out to fly fish, focus on open shorelines. You may see some late season fish cruising close to the bank in search of food. Static nymphing or slow stripping flies will be effective. Streamers, leaches, and even some eggs still are taking fish. etc.
We will begin updating ice conditions and ice fishing conditions once it gets rolling. Be cautious on early ice!!
We will see a slow and gradual warm up the first couple of days this week. Highs will be in the 30's and 40's. Morning lows will be very cold, so keep that in mind if you are heading up there.
Around next weekend there will be a disturbance moving through the area. The verdict is still out on if this incoming storm will affect this area, but right now it looks very minimal. We will be in a pretty uneventful pattern through the first part of December.
Antero Reservoir is a shallow reservoir with healthy plant life and more scud shrimp than you can shake a hook at. Because it is so loaded with these protein-rich scuds the trout feed on, their growth rate is significantly higher than fish in most other reservoirs within a reasonable driving distance. So if you have an appetite for catching large and beautifully colored Rainbows and Browns, consider Antero.
This is an area we specialize in and are permitted to guide, so give us a shout if you have any questions or if you are interested in allowing one of our Orvis-Endorsed guides show you how best to conquer Antero Reservoir.
