    I forgot to post on here the other day that the warden came down the other day and checked licenses and told us all something that all of us need to know. Meldahl dam will be closed to all fisherman on the kentucky side here in the near future. He was not sure the exact date but said it will be down for about a year and a half. OUCH! I said. He stated to all of us that meldahl will be under construction to be transformed into a power generating dam. he also stated that the water to his knowledge was not going to discharge throught the walls but rather there will be a huge discharge on the kentucky side. Thats why it will be closed for so long. They will not only be transforming it into power generating but also constructing a discharge. Stinks in my opinion. 15 people standing elbow to elbow trying to fish the exact same spot. I was wondering why there was a barge banked over there a few months ago with equipment on it. It was there for about 2 weeks straight working on lines to get power over there. Some of you know which barge im talking about. It had a huge track hoe and some other drillin type of equipment on it. Just thought I would tell yas bout it and when I find out more I will post it.
