If you are an angler, you are sure to find plenty of prime fishing spots in the Finger Lakes, and the local experts are generally more than willing to share their expertise and point you toward what’s biting and where. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation stocks some of the Finger Lakes annually to maintain fish population.
– Catherine Creek, at the southern tip of Seneca Lake , is a particularly favorable spot for trout fishing, though trout (especially brown trout and rainbow trout) is a prime catch all over Seneca Lake. Perch, pike and bass are also abundant. Small-mouth bass are especially good in the warmer waters of the more shallow areas of the lake.
– Check out the annual Memorial Day Lake Trout Derby. The event was started over 55 years ago, and is the most well known fishing event in the region.
