Hello! I am a brand new member, and this is my first post. I would like to find a few decent fishing spots in the Tinley Park/Matteson area. I would like to find something that isn't too far (within 15-20 min drive) from 57 and Lincoln hwy. I am looking to fish for Large/Smallmouth bass, and do a little catfishing so any suggestions on how to fish the area (bait, tackle, depths, etc) would be awesome! Tight Lines Everybody! :)2

Used to fish a lil lake on 167 w of Harlem, big roaches for cats, normal bass lures for them. Monee reservoir not too far. Google earth is a great tool to find / explore target areas. Good luck.

Thanks for the reply @kincaid. I got on google earth and from the looks of it you are referring to a place called, Hilbert Siemsen Meadow. Does this sound familiar? Also, I've read on here that Monee reservoir is really overfished, and you basically have to have a boat to arch anything there. Can anyone tell me if this is accurate?
