Changes coming at Lake La Su An for anglers 2012.02.22

Written by David Green.

Anglers will no longer be required to make a reservation, or collect a special fishing permit, in order to fish the lakes on the La Su An Wildlife Area, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Wildlife. 

Anglers will not be required to check in or out at the Fish Check Station. All lakes on the area will be open to fishing, however, the number of days that anglers can fish the lakes will be restricted. 

From May 4 through July 30, the lakes will be open to fishing four days a week: Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The La Su An Wildlife area will be closed to fishing at all other times.  All lakes will be open from sunrise to sunset during designated fishing days.

The sunfish bag limits will be posted and will be in effect area wide. This means that only one bag limit will be allowed each day regardless of how many lakes you fish. Largemouth bass will have an 18-inch minimum length limit with a five-fish-daily bag limit. Channel catfish will have a two-fish-daily bag limit. All statewide fishing regulations apply to the area lakes except when superseded by the special regulations mentioned above. 

These changes have been designed to continue the tradition of quality bluegill fishing on the La Su An area lakes by continuing to regulate the amount of fishing pressure without the need for anglers to obtain a reservation. Parking will only be allowed in designated areas.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
