Spectacular salmon fishing on Lake Ontario

One way or another, each of the eleven Finger Lakes eventually drains into Lake Ontario. The outlets of Conesus, Hemlock, Canadice, and Honeoye are all tributaries of the Genesee River, which enters the Great Lake at Rochester. Canandaigua, Keuka, Seneca, Cayuga, Owasco and Skaneateles all drain into the Seneca River. And the Otisco Lake outlet flows into and out of Onondaga Lake at Syracuse before joining the confluence of the Seneca and Oneida Rivers to form the Oswego River, which then empties into Lake Ontario at Oswego. Keuka is the only Finger Lake to drain into another, with its cascading outlet entering Seneca Lake at Dresden.

Even though every one of the Finger Lakes provides excellent fishing for a variety of species, Lake Ontario is the focus of this article from Life in the Finger Lakes magazine because its salmon fishery is hard to beat at this time of year.
