They're going to drain Antero this summer

Got back from fishing the high country to find this posting on Channel 7 News website.  Should we put on our warmest gear and head to Antero before they drain the place?

PARK COUNTY, Colo. - Antero Reservoir will be drained this summer to finish work on the century-old dam.
Because of the draining plans, Colorado Parks and Wildlife will raise the fishing limit to eight trout, with no size restrictions, starting Saturday.  Water levels won't be completely restored until 2018.  When the reservoir level recedes, CPW staff will conduct a salvage operation below Antero Reservoir, as fish migrate out of Antero Reservoir.
The salvaged fish will be relocated to other Park County waters.  Click here for a link to the complete article.
