The winter 2012 Huron River Watershed Council newsletter is out. Check it out, it's got a picture from yours-truly on the article about low water levels in the river.
If you think the river levels are low, you should see it along the Lakes. There is a beach on Belle Isle where I go to take ship pictures (sometimes) and what used to be about 3 foot beach is now about a 10 or more foot beach.
That's a great pic, Ben, and a very timely article. Hopefully policy can be made to meet the needs in lake level control. Loved the article "200 Years of Michigan Fish." Can't wait for parts 2-4.
