Default Spinney Res regulations

New to the area and was wondering if anyone can explain the no live bait or scented bait rules on the lake? Are powerbaits and scented soft baits that bad? I

it's a gold medal water - the idea is a catch and release area. there is also a minimum 20" keeper size. when you fish with bait and it gets swallowed there's a higher likelihood of a dead fish. plus I suppose it's not "sporting" on a water that's supposed to be all about the sport and not the harvest.
there are plenty of areas that prohibit bait, some where you're not even allowed to possess them (quincy). the bait itself isn't bad/harmful, it's just not the kind of fishing the powers that be want on that waterway.

Only artificial flies and lures are allowed. CPW defines "artificial flies and lures" as: "Devices made entirely of or a combination of natural or synthetic, nonedible, unscented (regardless if scent is added during the manufacturing process or applied after) materials such as wood, plastic, silicone, rubber, epoxy, glass, hair, metal, feathers or fiber, designed to attract fish. This does not include anything defined as bait below."

Bait fishing and snagging are both prohibited. This restriction also applies to the South Platte River both above and below the reservoir and is strictly enforced. CPW defines bait as: "Hand-moldable material designed to attract fish by taste or smell. Devices with scents or smell attractants added or externally applied, regardless if added during manufacturing or after. Scented manufactured fish eggs and traditional organic baits, including but not limited to worms, grubs, crickets, leeches, minnows, dough baits, stink baits, insects, crayfish, human food, fish, fish parts or fish eggs."

and for those that think there is a kill order for pike at Spinney read this, note the last paragraph!!!!!!!!

Pike Management at Spinney Reservoir

Man holding trophy Northern PikeIn order to successfully manage both the trout and pike populations in stable numbers, CPW has instituted several innovative management techniques for Spinney Reservoir. These include removing all size and bag limits on pike; stocking trout only in the late fall or early winter when pike metabolisms have slowed down (they are less hungry); stocking trout that are at least 12" long; and encouraging fishermen to harvest all pike caught, regardless of size.

This final measure is important to reduce the number of smaller pike present in the reservoir, allowing for a larger number of healthy, trophy- sized pike to be recruited.
