NANFA-L-- Speckled Dace - Where Oh Where

It seems like every single state with populations of non-threatened
speckled dace prohibit removing live fish from the water in which they
were taken. It's legal to catch as many as you want and kill them on the
spot in some places, but not to take them home. Does anyone know of a
legal way to acquire speckled dace?

I want to gain some experience keeping a non-threatened subspecies
before trying to convince local authorities to let me keep some Santa
Ana Speckled Dace. It's really looking like all pathways to legally
acquiring native fish are closed off in most of the Western United States.
