I was fishing valco ponds (below Pueblo res) a week of so ago and spotted a guy on a kayak out fishing, at the time I thought nothing about it. later in the week I went there and noticed the sign posted saying no boats. I have an inflatable raft that I had thought about launching there before I saw the regs sign. I talked to a ranger that was out doing license checks, he told me the raft is illegal as well as kayaks. float tubes were the only exception. he stated if caught on the ponds in a "boat" all gear including the boat is confiscated a $700.00 fine and loss of fishing license for a year. just thought I'd pass this on incase the kayaker I saw is on the forums. he had a really nice boat, fish finder mounted and a gopro, plus all the fishing gear. that would sting to pay $700.00 to lose it!
