The state of Colorado has a wide variety of wildlife and it's because of this that there are plenty of rules, regulations, and laws that involve animals.

A recent Facebook post from the official page of St. Vrain State Park took advantage of a viral, albeit somewhat vulgar meme's popularity to spell out the rules associated with bass fishing at Bald Eagle Pond.

In addition, any largemouth bass caught at Bald Eagle Pond must be immediately released. However, according to the official website of Colorado Parks and Wildlife, anglers are permitted to keep any white bass or wiper they catch from the pond.

As you'll see below, St. Vrain State Park is home to numerous bodies of water in addition to Bald Eagle Pond, but regardless of where you fish, it's vital to know and follow the rules.
