no just a salmon fillet
Don't want to be a Debbie downer, but you should check the regs on that - it's probably illegal to use salmon for bait. I once used pyloric caeca (part of the gut) of a lake trout I caught, when I ran out of sucker, and a game warden told me that wasn't kosher.

it was not a kokanee fillet so i don't see it being a problem
According to regs, only "minnows, bluegill, hybrid bluegill, carp, sunfish, gizzard shad, sculpin, white and longnose suckers, yellow perch and rainbow smelt" may be "caught and used" for bait, whether dead or alive. Not sure if they would be sticklers over whether the salmon was caught in Colorado, as they also classify "human food" as bait in another section...

I agree. The regs are not always clearly and simply stated, and in addition, you have different reg related to the same subject in more tha one place, so you have to look at all the regs to put all the pieces together.
