Not only do you have to use barb less or pinched hooks they can and will check your other tackle you have with you to make sure ALL hook are barb less or pinched.

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

So are you allowed to enter the water on Ladora w/o Waders? I could have sworn there was something that said waders were required but I could be wrong.

@ walleyedsalmon - waders are required at Ladora if you're going to get in the water. For future reference, you're only able to wade after Memorial Day.
