I think you will find even if the fish is bleeding and going to die you still need to return it to the water.
I guess there is no way for a ranger to tell if the fish was killed intentionly or not.

Ive had the same problem, cought a 6lber in a 500mm size limit area a few years ago and the fish was gut hooked and bleeding, So I just cut the line and hoped the fish survived.
