Found this info and great video http://www.knowledgestream.org/kstream/ ... em_id=1979 on another site about VHS by Dr. Eugene Braig IV. He aslo writes "Technically, the ODA proclamation prohibits the transport of live fish and living or dead baitfish on the susceptible list from north of US-6 in the west and I-90 in the east to south of that line. Thus, an angler could strip eggs from a fish caught upstream/south of I-90 and still use them anyplace south of that line. However, eggs collected north of I-90 or from the open lake cannot be used to the south.The proclamation is far from perfect. It still permits an angler to net potentially infected lake-run shad just upstream of I-90 and use them inland throughout Ohio. As pointed out here, it also prevents an angler from stripping steelhead eggs north of I-90 and using them to the south on the same stream where the fish themselves are already carrying them anyhow. I suggested the proclamation be reworded yet again to redraw the restriction line to emulate the Lake Erie fishing regs: at the first dam. This mitigates both previous examples, and anglers who fish Lake Erie and tribs are already accustomed to recognizing that line".

There are many questions and much ambiguity in the proclamation and the press release is a disaster. This was admitted to me when I called the ODA last week. Seems that there was a lot of 'attorney influence' in both. The person I spoke with seemed to have a position of authority in the ODA. He also asked for some input and agreed that the I-90 thing was not logical as it restricted some tribs to about a mile and others to many miles with NO REGARD to actual fish movement. I suggested that there were only about 11 streams that would/should/could have actual dams and or landmarks named and he agreed that this could be doable.
ALL FOLKS WHO HAVE SOME CONCERN ABOUT THIS ISSUE SHOULD CALL!!THESE LITTLE FORUM DISCUSSIONS DON'T DO SQUAT UNLESS YOU CALL THE PEOPLE MAKING THE RULES.
The number I called was 614-728-6211. I was transferred to a ODA veterinarian voice mail who called back within a half hour. We then spoke for about another half hour.
STEP AWAY FRON THE KEYBOARD, STRAP ON A SET AND MAKE THE CALL. No one wants VHS spread to inland waters but some common sense, logic and clarity in the rules and the press releases that announce them are NOT too much to ask for.

This all might be a moot point if we don't get chicago to close the locks to prevent any further contamination by the Asian Carp. The feds just sided with the lock owners!!! Contact your state and Federal legislators to put some pressure on. If not,,,,,,,,,,, no more steelhead spawn for fishing and for more fish. Michigan's 7 BILLION dollar fishery is being assaulted by a 3 Million dollar a year barge industry. What's fair about that???
