Anglers and campers can rejoice: Antero Reservoir will open for camping and modified fishing at 9 a.m. on Monday, June 5. The area been closed since 2015 to accommodate an extensive repair project on the 108-year-old Antero Dam.
Only shore angling, kayaks, belly boats, float tubes and canoes will be permitted until further notice. Watercraft cannot be launched from a trailer, or use gas, diesel or electric motors.
