Created in 1895 and located on Gibraltar Island in Put-in-Bay harbor, Stone Laboratory is the nation's oldest freshwater biological field station and the Island Campus of The Ohio State University.  The F.T. Stone Laboratory is instrumental in providing detailed scientific research for the effective management of the Great Lakes fishery, and of Lake Erie in particular.  Join the Fly Fish Ohio team as we discuss the current state of the Lake Erie ecosystem and explore some of the issue facing the future of this fabulous lake.  From perch to steelhead and from smallmouth to walleye, if you're planning on fishing Lake Erie you need to listen to this program.  For more information on Lake Erie, and especially on the amazing steelhead fishery located near Cleveland, be sure to visit the Cleveland Metroparks blog.  You may also want to visit the following sites:
