It’s been another good year for walleye fishing on Lake Erie. The fishery is attracting plenty of anglers and boats, including a crowd of about 100 for the annual Governor’s Fish Ohio outing for media members, state fish management employees and others.
Proposals have been made and are now under consideration at Cowan and Acton Lakes in southwest Ohio to increase horsepower limits. At Cowan, the decision has been made to keep the 10 hp limit for another year while it is under further study. At Acton, a decision could be handed down in May. If hp limits are raised only idle speed will be allowed.
