Unwarranted reply, dg0515. Whatever we know now, there was always a time when we didn't know it. No point making fun of someone asking a question, no matter how basic it may seem to you.
Those who've been to Dowdy before are aware that it's relatively easy to catch fish there, and that it can be done with almost any trout ice fishing method you can think of. Minnows, dead or alive, are not necessary.
Itís all good I donít get worried or offended by whatís said on here. Iíve never been up there so I figured Iíd ask. Just itching to get on the ice and officially start my season. So all is well with me my friends! Lol as long as the game warden doesnít have a problem with the bait I use I could care less what anyone else thinks. We all have opinions.
Last time I check fatheads are part of the pimephales family. Which are from here in north america. I think you should fact check a little more. As many fish are not native to our waters anyways... I think you should calm down a little about the minnows. I am guessing you may be trolling but still...
My goodness calm yourself. Thatís why there are regs on where you can and canít use aquatic live bait. Thatís why I asked. Iím sure your aware that there are lots of waters that do allow such baits and lots of anglers use them in said waters. And when bought from a reputable supplier with proof of purchase itís perfectly legal. But if you believe this is an erroneous policy then yes I would like you to write a full essay detailing the risks of allowing live bait to be used in any water and please submit it to the Colorado DOW so that they may take your concerns into consideration and possibly change current policies for the betterment of all of us. My sincere apologies for making your blood pressure rise.

dg0515 . . . . .Contempt,pryer to investigation . . . . .look before you leap! We have the whole minnow thing under control,here in Colorado.Minnows come from comericial minnow farms.The farm can only sell noevasive minnows. (thats why you got to have a reciept from your bait shop for your minnows!) Its also why I can't go out to any old pond and sein minnows,then transport them to my favorite lake to fish with.(sad face emojo) Next time,do your homework first,then open your yap!
