Western Lake Erie’s algae bloom is in full swing – and the water is a sickly green.
A t Maumee Bay State Park near Toledo, Ohio, the lake looks like it’s covered in paint. Thick lines of scum swirl around as the sun beats down.
Charter boat Capt. Don McGee takes a group of students and reporters to the middle of the lake to describe what’s floating around. He’s fished Lake Erie for over 30 years. He says it isn’t going to get healthy overnight, but more needs to be done.
