What a wonderful summer we had getting the lead, line, and lures out of the Maumee River!  Big thank you to all of our volunteers who gave their time and energy to improve local water quality.  We are especially grateful to our friends at the Toledo Zoo (ZooTeens), Fallen Timbers - Trout Unlimited, Natural Science Technology Center, Toledo Metroparks volunteers, Pack 167, and our fellow fish fin-atics who worked to improve the condition of our waterways and remove what was left behind during the Walleye Run this spring.  This summer, we were able to facilitate six Get the Lead Outs along the Maumee River, with cleanups at Side Cut Metropark and Orleans Park in Perrysburg.  We had almost 200 volunteers who covered 3.5 river miles and removed close to 30 pounds of fishing gear.  Along with the lead and line, volunteers removed 445 pounds of trash from these locations.  Their hard work makes the waterways in Northwest Ohio safer for fish and wildlife who support successful Walleye and White Bass runs for anglers in the spring. We are so inspired by the amount of people who came out and showed they really care about clean, clear, and safe water.  Thanks guys and hope to see you next summer!
