U.S. scientists say they have found evidence of human activity on a 9,000-year-old land bridge now located more than 100-feet deep in Lake Huron. University of Michigan researchers, who made the discovery, said the ruins are of caribou-hunting structures and camps used by the early hunters of the period. This is the first time we've identified structures like these on the lake bottom, said Professor John O'Shea, curator of Great Lakes archaeology at the university's Museum of Anthropology....

By Tina Lam, Detroit Free Press Aug. 4--After a parched summer last year that left docks stranded and boat propellers scraping sandy shallows, the Great Lakes are blissfully -- and surprisingly -- full again this year. Heavy snow and rains since last winter have made the lakes rise. Scientists aren't sure whether this will last, but they're hopeful. The temperatures, moisture and ice cover next winter will be critical. "If we get two more good, normal winters with normal precipitation,...

OFF ATWATER BEACH, Wis. _ This place should be an underwater desert. But as the trio of researchers wearing scuba tanks and lead weights drops through the water, the landscape of rounded stones 30 feet below is disturbingly full of strange, new life. In just a few years, the gravel and white boulders that for centuries covered the bottom of Lake Michigan between Chicago and the Door County peninsula have disappeared under a carpet of mussels and primitive plant life. The change is not...

CHICAGO -- When thousands of bloody, hemorrhaging fish recently turned up on the Lake Michigan shore south of Milwaukee, it confirmed the worst fears of scientists worried that an Ebola-like virus stalking Great Lakes fish would strike closer to Chicago. The dead fish were round gobies, a small invasive species that many feel is better off dead. But unlike many other diseases that tend to hit one or two types of fish, this viral strain has led to large fish kills involving more than 30...

By Dan Egan, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Jun. 18--U.S. and Canadian officials will be in Wisconsin this week for two public hearings on the persistently low Lake Michigan water levels. The International Joint Commission, a binational group created to help the two countries manage their shared waters, is in the middle of a five-year study of how to better manage the waters in Lakes Superior, Michigan and Huron. The three big lakes have been at or near their historical lows in the past...

Counting dead birds along Lake Michigan's Upper Peninsula shoreline last November was mind-numbing, even emotional for wildlife biologist Joe Kaplan. Hundreds of loons, cormorants, gulls, long-tailed ducks and grebes were scattered across the sand, washed up and rotting. Then he spotted a familiar bird. The yellow band on its lifeless leg showed it was C3, a loon that had lived for 14 seasons at Seney National Wildlife Refuge in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The adult male was 22 miles from...

JACKSONPORT, Wis. -- It was a different story when the first "polar bears" took to the frigid New Year's Day waters in Jacksonport 22 years ago. It was 1986, and Lake Michigan was at its historic peak, about 6 feet higher than it was on Tuesday morning. But that's just a number. To get an idea of how much things have changed since then, consider this: Firefighters this year had to string yellow caution tape stretching from the icy shoreline into the lake to protect participants from...

By Daly, Pete GRAND HAVEN - Business was good this year for some of the charter fishing operators on Lake Michigan - in spite of expensive gasoline, a weak Michigan economy, smaller salmon, and threats from invasive species and fish diseases. Key to their success is how many chinook salmon customers catch. "As far as tourism and charter fishing, the big hype is on (chinook) salmon," said Dick Stafford, who runs a charter business out of Gladstone near Escanaba, and who is president of the...
