MEDINA – Two fishermen from Depew were in Medina today for the first time in 20 years, determined to catch bass at Glenwood Lake.

Don Chadwick and Jeff Becker remember fishing at the lake when they were in their teens. They arrived this morning to find the lake’s water level had dropped 2 feet. The boat launch is closed while the lake level has been reduced so emergency repairs can be made to a manhole at the Medina’s sewer plant.

The two fishermen said they were given permission by police to venture into the water because their bass boat has a small engine.

The lake levels are expected to return to normal beginning on Thursday after the repairs are made to the manhole.
