OTHER CAYUGA LAKE INFORMATION

Swimming, Fishing, and Sailing

Cayuga Lake is a popular venue for sailing, swimming, fishing, and other aquatic sports because of its large size.

This lake is a perfect spot for salmon and trout fishing because of the chilly waters found in the lake's deeper corners. Several of Cayuga's streams also provide a spring rainbow trout fishery and a fall landlocked salmon fishery. You can also get an abundance of largemouth bass, perch, and pickerel during summer.

Drive the Breathtaking Byway

The Cayuga Lake Scenic Byway is an 87-mile loop bordering Cayuga Lake that accents the lake's shores, spectacular views, and woodland landscapes. There are countless natural, historical, and cultural amusements to visit along the way.
