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.
