    OHIO WILDLIFE COUNCIL APPROVES REDUCTION IN DAILY BAG LIMIT FOR WESTERN LAKE ERIE YELLOW PERCH
    Twenty-five fish daily limit takes effect July 1 in waters west of Huron

    COLUMBUS, OH - Lake Erie anglers fishing in Ohio waters west of Huron will face a reduction this summer in the daily bag limit for yellow perch, following action by the Ohio Wildlife Council on Wednesday.

    Beginning July 1, the daily bag limit for yellow perch will drop from 30 to 25 fish per angler, but only in waters west of Huron. The daily bag limit will remain at 30 fish per angler in Ohio waters from Huron eastward, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife.

    In additional action, the wildlife council:

    1. Approved a reduction in the statewide daily bag limit for muskellunge from two fish to one fish.
    2. Allowed access to several lakes owned by the Division of Wildlife to motorboats greater than 10 horsepower as long as they operate at idle speed. These lakes include Knox Lake in Knox County, Lake La Su An in Williams County, Oxbow Lake in Defiance County, and Rupert Lake in Vinton County.
    3. Allowed 10-horsepower motors on Greenfield Lake and Rockmill Lake in Fairfield County, and Zepernick Lake in Columbiana County.

    -30-

    I agree with ram rod.
    I wish they had that for Hoover. I know some great catfish holes there.

    I wish they would allow the bigger motors on hoover I have a 15 hp and it's no different than 9.9 hp but rules are rules. My trolling motor has just about the same thrust.
