We don't get to hear enough of these stories so I thought I would share.

Three males were caught with 21 undersize(<8") dead Smallmouth at Chatfield on Friday. Two of the males were given citations and had their gear confiscated. Both citations will carry -15 points towards their license. They cannot lose anymore points or they will lose their privileged to fish in CO. The Rangers out there are proud of what they found and are on the lookout for more. Be advised, if you are a poacher there is a good chance somebody will be watching. If you do not know the regulations, do not fish until you do.

Good! That's interesting that fishing licenses have a point system like a drivers license. I was not aware of that. I've seen dudes at creek keep like six inch walleye. Some people are desperate.

Some think fishing is a game...... like a claw machine there are those who feel a fish caught is theirs where efforts ought to be rewarded.........on top of this, so many of these individuals know the regulations and just don't give a damn..... for those who are poaching, their right to fish in colorado should be taken away

If they really want to hand out citations they should go to Brush Hollow some weekend-there were times I felt I was the ONLY one obeying the rules down there.

Glad they got busted.

In the real world of fisheries biology, they did a miniscule attempt at culling!!! Poor fisheries management equals dink fisheries. Unfortunately they were busted cleaning up a metro CDOW abortion!!! What do you expect from govt. Incompetence?

15 points sounds good enough to lose the right to fish forever. Anybody on this forum have even one point?
