Abstract: Gordon Creek, a tributary of the Maumee River in northwestern Ohio, was investigated by Meek in 1887, by Trautman 1929-38, by the personnel of the Ohio Division of Wildlife between 1954 and 1973, and by Trautman and Gartman in 1973. Dredging and ditching in this area were begun about 1850, continuing until the present, with major channelization occurring in 1935. Channelization, together with the effects of dams and pollution, has had a major effect on the fish species present in this stream.
