Why is that we never see any posts about fishing in Evanston, Wilmette, Winnetka, Glencoe, Highland Park and Lake Forest? Are salmon and trout not present in these areas? Interesting how Winnetka remains one of the places for salmon snagging every Oct but I've yet to see any zombies or dead ones floating around.

At this time of the year, the majority of your coho will be on the south end in warmer water. As the water warms, the fish will make their way north in bigger numbers. No reason why you wouldn't be able to catch those from shore. Usually by the second week of May, the Waukegan area is hot for coho, depending on the warmth of the spring. I'd say in about 2 weeks or so, Wilmette and north would be good for shore fishing numbers. Just my opinion though, I've never done it.
