May I use Berkley's Power Bait in Rocky Mountain National Park?

Here is the regulations, but I'm still confused, quick question: May I use Power Bait there? Thank you!
"Each person shall use only one hand-held rod or line. A 'second rod stamp' is not honored in park waters. Only artificial lures or flies with one (single, double, or treble) hook with a common shank may be used. "Artificial flies or lures" means devices made entirely of, or a combination of, materials such as wood, plastic, glass, hair, metal, feathers, or fiber, designed to attract fish. This does not include: (a) any hand moldable material designed to attract fish by the sense of taste or smell (b) any device to which scents or smell attractants have been externally applied (c) molded plastic devices less than one and one-half inch in length (d) foods (e) traditional organic baits such as worms, grubs, crickets, leeches, minnows, and fish eggs and (f) manufactured baits such as imitation fish eggs, dough baits, or stink baits. Fly fishers may utilize a two hook system, where one hook is used as an attractant."

Capt'n. No you can't as it's a moldable product, as well as being scented to attract the fish. Not allowed.
