We would like to thank the Gallia County CVB and Bob Hood for making this event a success. Also, Ray Mckinnis and Bob Evans Farm for hosting the kids rodeo in which 41 kids participated. Also, Keith from Boomerang Tools was on hand showing off their new line of products. It was a beautiful day, but fishing had been really tough as their hadn't been any current. However, current did pick up today and we saw several good fish caught. Also the West Virginia DNR was on hand measuring fish and checking them for tags. The DNR found 3 fish that had tags, and they were pleasantly surprised at the large increase in blues that were weighed in.
