Well since they're gone... No one would mind if someone happened to pick up
some previously abandoned valves then huh? <gollum> <gollum> ;)

Is this, then, a new slogan for the Maumee watershed rehabilitation?


I think we should start a watershed wide promotion. Anyway... What a sweet
little stream, that EFWB. It was so cool to catch grass pickerel and
mudminnows 15 feet away from where I was catching sculpin, hornyhead and
river chubs, rainbow and logperch darters. Not to mention, the beds of live
mussels. And there are tons of rootwad habitat where we might find some of
the remaining pirate perch in the Maumee.

Who wants to go there in October? We're doing the Little Muskingum down
there Marietta way the 15th and 16th of October (announcement to come soon).
I'm game for any other weekend. Michigan and Indiana folks? I can see
about going to Lake Wilson to my friend's parents cottage and look at least
and Iowa darter, blacknose and blackchin shiners, and all the fabulous
centrarchids found in OH/MI/IN are easily caught on hook and line. They'd
probably put us up, and I'd bet Todd and Dave would drive in from Chicago to
participate. Might be a fun little trip.

Also looking into a trip in November down to the Licking River in Kentucky
east of Lexington.

Yeah... I've got some fishin' trips to make up for since I had to cancel
everything this summer ;)
