For those coming from Denver or Colorado Springs, Antero Reservoir is a great option and makes for an easy and fun day trip.

Antero Reservoir, nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, is surrounded by majestic mountain peaks. For those looking for a remote trip into the heart of nature, look no further. If the scenery doesn’t take your breath away, the fishing surely will. Antero Reservoir offers a diverse fishery and holds trophy Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Cutbow Trout, Splake, Tiger Trout, and Tiger Muskie. The area lives up to its nickname as Land of the Giants due to the fact that the fish grow fast and large. This is due to the water’s relative warmth because of the shallowness of the reservoir.
