I was there the weekend of the 16th and talked to a local woman who lives just down the road and knows the local authorities, she states that at first the DNR kinda cringed on the idea of tossin fish but, givin the fact that the fish count is down and they really saw no harm in it that they decided to let it continue for a variaty of reasons.
My buddy the Eagle man has been doing it for years and has never had any problems. And if it was an issue I am certain they would have done something about it.

I spent a good part of yesterday afternoon searching for the laws on feeding eagles and there is nothing concrete about it. The only law I saw involving feeding eagles was the one in that Alaska town where they were bringing in eagles to photograph and it got so bad they had to make a local ordinance against it except for the woman who had started it, and she died a couple years ago. If the DNR saw anything bad about it, they would cook up something to stop it, so it looks like in this case, there is no problem.
That town would be Homer ,And I heard the big stink was that the birds were crapping on the boats at the docks and the city leaders didnt like that anymore having Eagle poo on their boats hence the new ordinance ,even after the lady died they let the feeding go on till the following spring ..or something like that.
