Colorado Parks and Wildlife Definition of:
"Artificial flies and lures" means devices made entirely of, or a combination of, natural or synthetic non-edible, non-scented (regardless if the scent is added in the manufacturing process or applied afterward), materials such as wood, plastic, silicone, rubber, epoxy, glass, hair, metal, feathers, or fiber, designed to attract fish. This definition does not include anything defined as bait in below.
 “Bait” means any hand-moldable material designed to attract fish by the sense of taste or smell; those devices to which scents or smell attractants have been added or externally applied (regardless if the scent is added in the manufacturing process or applied afterward); scented manufactured fish eggs and traditional organic baits, including but not limited to worms, grubs, crickets, leeches, dough baits or stink baits, insects, crayfish, human food, fish, fish parts or fish eggs.

The notion is to encourage the safe release of fish , requiring artificial flies and lures. It all boils down to the difference between active and passive fishing.

With the former, an angler sets the hook at the moment of strike. Typically, the fish is hooked in the mouth, promoting a safe release. By contrast, anglers often allow fish to swallow natural bait or scented lures, with a high degree of mortality. CPW has a rule that requires scented lures to be at least 1 1/2 inches long in certain restricted waters, making it impractical to use them in passive fashion.

SO... what does all this mean to our members?

The resort follows the CPW guidelines and will implement the same restrictions regarding scented lures.Scented lures will be allowed at the catch and release lakes but must be at least 1 1/2 inches long to prevent swallowing. 

Please contact a staff member if you have any questions.
