Glenwood Lake is a hydroelectric reservoir created around 1925 by damming Oak Orchard Creek. The NYS Barge Canal is a major tributary and fisheries influence. Water level fluctuations caused by hydroelectric dam operation likely limit shoreline spawning. The deeper portions of the reservoir are devoid of oxygen.
Glenwood Lake has a steep sided, rocky shoreline with fluctuating water levels which limit aquatic vegetation to shallow areas near the dam and creek inlets.
Statewide fishing regulations apply (leaving DEC website to official Fishing Regulations Guide vendor website).
