Anyone know if it is open yet? Can’t find anything clear online. I know the bait shop is still closed though..

Looks like they're open with controlled access. I know Mayor Lightfoot has been threatening to go back to Phase 3 if the COVID uptick continues, but she seems to be focusing on people in bars and restaurants without masks. Website below has a number you can call if you want to make sure of current status.


For 31st Street, Burnham, Belmont and Montrose, access to the harbors is controlled by Traffic Management Aides (TMA’s). In order to get through those checkpoints, please show your harbors parking card. If you don’t have a card because you are a new applicant or have lost your card, please print a copy of you slip invoice to show the TMA’s in order to gain access to get your new or replacement card.

All public parking east of Lake Shore Drive is closed by order of the Chicago Park District. This includes the public portion of the garage at 31st Street. Until the CPD lifts the closure, we suggest that boaters ask guests to find parking west of LSD and then pick them up and bring them to the harbor.
Good fishing,
