Glenmere Lake


Glenmere Lake

Glenmere Lake, located in the Village of Florida, is a shallow weedy lake that provides anglers with some shore access but is perfect for a small rowboat or canoe. Best bets for largemouth bass are using spinnerbaits, plastic worms and weedless topwater baits. Small micro jigs and nightcrawlers work great for the panfish.
