I did speak to one of the two officers at the Arsenal regarding this very topic. He stated that they did not expect all tackle in our boxes to be barbless. With that being said the lures on you pole (poles of you carry more than one) MUST be barbless. Hooks do not need to be changed out to "barbless", they can have the barbs pinched down COMPLETELY so as to function barbless. I have been lucky enough to fish this facility since the early 90's when it was blind draw for permits and have always found the officers to be very reasonable and helpful as long as you are doing your due diligence and being a respectful angler.
maybe they need more enforcement???? I was there opening day and saw one officer and he didn't even get out of the truck, I have also fished this place for nearly 10 years and have been checked... that's right once, and only for my license
