Here's a response I received from the City of Glenview:

Fishing is not allowed until May 15th. I have alerted our Police Department to the problem. Please feel free to call the Police Department at 847/729-5000 if you see persons fishing before the 15th.

They don't do it to protect the spawn. It's actually a pretty stupid rule. When the Glen was built up the residents didn't want there to be any fishing allowed in the lake at all. I guess they felt that fisherman would only dirty the place up. In a complete compromise with the residents it was decided that people could fish, but only for 6 months out of the year. So they came up with an arbitrary May 15th to November 15th season. Leave it to the rich and snooty to keep the fisherman down. :(

In fact I don't even know if the fish in there are really spawning that well. They stock that lake on a regular basis and I haven't really seen any small bass or walleye in there. They all seem to be stocked fish that grew up. Anyone else ever see baby fish in there???

Oh, and one more thing, the nature watching during the Summer is very nice. Lots of pretty things to look at!! :shock: :D :D :D

Just ask anyone on this board who has fished there before in warm weather. 8)
