A link to the will County Forest preserve District:

I was there one time last year with one of my sons and grandsons. Was hot weather in Oct if I recall.
the boat ramp was closed. Think the ranger said ramp open sometime in April - Oct 1st.
Nice looking ramp for little boats. Lots of walking around the lake. A few dink bluegills were caught and released.
(I don't recall seeing catch and release signs, but we release all anyway)

Good Luck! (and have fun)

A friend turned me onto KVD Swim Jigs/Bluegill patern, work well for smallies and largemouth. Be prepared to lose a few bouncing it off the bottom, there are some nice rock piles out there where the smallies tend to hold.
