Guest Speaker:

Roger Knight from the Ohio Division of Wildlife
* Roger reported that the hatch reports were completed the first week of September. Walleye is about half of last year, and perch are not average, but better than walleye. There are no regulation changes as of this time.

* Ballville Dam project is progressing. Dam will be gone by 2012.
* Roger answered questions concerning cormorants, and commercial fishing issues.
* The Bay Shore Power Plant was discussed. The major issue was the fish kill and what is being done about it. Division of Wildlife has no authority, but they are trying to put pressure on the EPA to make something get started. Still in information mode.
