Not until April 1 though! That's when the new regs go into effect, along with the new license period and regulation books. CL
According to the DOW site - it went into effect Jan1st

New Regulations Effective Jan. 1, 2011


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Division of Wildlife is reminding anglers across Colorado that new fishing regulations took effect Jan. 1. The new regulations were developed through an extensive public process last summer and fall as part of the Division's five-year review of fishing regulations in the state.

New statewide regulations include a prohibition on transporting bait fish between bodies of water and on transporting crayfish on the Western Slope. Additionally, to protect native and endangered fish populations in the Colorado and San Juan River basins, a number of creeks, streams and rivers now allow for unlimited take of non-native fish.

Hmmm...the press release isn't congruent with the "regulation period" but it's probably a moot point given that the lake is now closed to boating until April 1.

I let a bunch of eater size walleyes swim away this last weekend based on my understanding of the regulation period... Doh! CL
