Lake: Dream Lake - RMNP

Please know the regs!

I'm going to come off as preachy here for a minute, so a fair warning for everyone who doesn't want to hear it.
Everywhere we fish, we need to know the regs, and follow them. This should go without stating, but it's even more important in wilderness areas like RMNP or IPWA.
Earlier today on RMNP's social media page, these 2 images were posted. A bat had gotten tangled up in a barbed lure around Dream Lake and later died because of it. Dream lake is a catch-and-release water which means only barbless hooks are allowed. Please, I implore you to know and follow the unique regs in special places like rocky. This bat only died because of carelessness by an angler.
