PERRYSBURG - It looks like nothing can keep a walleye fisherman down.
High water. Frigid temperatures. Late-season snow. They've all conspired to deter anglers from braving the Maumee River in hopes of hooking the fish.
It doesn't look like it's worked.
Fishermen could be seen in droves on the river late last week - on Thursday, they were in profusion on the western side of the Perrysburg/Maumee bridge, hip deep in the chilly water or casting their lines from the decks of outboard launches. A good number were also trying their luck east of the bridge at Orleans Park, said to have some of the best walleye fishing on the river.
For Anthony Sims, it wasn't all about the walleye. About to make his first foray of the day into the river Thursday morning, he said he likes "the serenity, the peacefulness, the harmony with the people." That's what brought him down from Ann Arbor to stay with family for the duration of the walleye run.

Bowling Green's Board of Public Utilities spent more than half of its nearly 2.5-hour meeting last week dealing with questions about electric rates and hearing a report on electric projects.
Several citizens asked questions regarding bills and expressed concerns about the Prairie State coal-fired plant in Illinois. One person presented a petition he said was signed by 7,500 Bowling Green State University students asking that the university convert to 100 percent clean energy. There were questions about a canceled coal plant in Meigs County, Ohio.
Late in 2013 the BPU approved a multi-year rate hike plan following a cost of service study. The first increases, averaging five percent for residential customers, were effective in March.
Four officials from American Municipal Power Inc., Columbus, answered questions and also presented a lengthy update on projects that will affect the city and its electric customers. Bowling Green is one 128 communities in seven states that purchase their electricity through AMP.
