Maumee in Lucas County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Maumee River Rapids
The turbid rapids provide oxygenated water and stir up nutrients and macro-invertebrates that are food for fish and other wildlife.
In spring, this stretch of the river is a destination for fisherman as walleye swim upriver to cast their eggs over the protective cobblestone below the rapids. The spawn, or "Spring Run," is the largest of its kind on the Great Lakes.
Erected by Metroparks of the Toledo Area.
