Fly Fish at Salmon Creek Falls

Catch a whopper Atlantic Salmon during spawning season in a picturesque setting on the Salmon Creek.

Park at the dead end designated DEC "Fishing Salmon Creek" lot. Casting anywhere on this stretch of stream leading up to Salmon Creek Falls is excellent fishing, especially near the bridge crossing which is in sight from the parking area.

Make sure to check spawning seasons for the area online before coming but generally from October-November, you'll see tons of Salmon swimming upstream from Cayuga Lake mating and laying eggs before swimming back to the lake for winter.

I definitely recommend coming during a week day, and if you can brave a colder day, do that as well. This is a pretty busy area on weekends for locals and visitors because of the large number of salmon, so coming at off times will make your experience that much better.

Fly Fish at Salmon Creek Falls Reviews

Been fishing this river from the age 8 to now and every year there is something new about this place . The River this year has been low so the fight to find nice fish here is hard but the look of the place is so nice just to come to walk
