Currents | June 2021

Did you know that the Great Lakes are the biggest freshwater source in the world? Lake Erie is the most productive for fishing of all the Great Lakes. Your support helps make our streams clean, clear and healthy so they can support this complex ecosystem. By donating to PCS, you help us reach our goals of restoring rivers that lead to Lake Erie beaches that promote fishable and swimmable conditions for generations.

June GLOAs the aquatic version of John Muir would read, the water is calling and we must GLO! Following the spring walleye run and white bass run on the Maumee River, the Get the Lead Out (GLO) program helps ensure that fish and stream-dependent wildlife are healthy and viable. We are looking forward to GLO this summer and hope you will join us! Sessions will start mid-June and run through late August. Sign up to be on our emailing list to receive the dates, check our calendar on the website, or follow us on social media so you do not miss the action!

Fishing line can remain in the ecosystem for over 600 years and can be detrimental to fish and wildlife due to entanglement. Monofilament line is virtually invisible, making it hard to remove from the banks of the rivers and branches on which it gets caught. Our Get the Lead Out program removes this plastic-based pollution and debris from local waterways so wildlife can continue to flourish and people can continue to fish.

Last year, 17 volunteers removed 131 pounds of trash. The fishing line we collect during Get the Lead Out is sorted, cleaned, and sent to Berkley Conservation Institute. They recycle and repurpose the used line into fish spawning enclosures, helping support and sustain critical fish populations for the future.
