Anyone have any advice where might be a good spot to fly fish this weekend in the Ithaca NY area.

I am visiting an old friend and may take a couple hours to wet a line.


Thanks,

Ralph

It's really not very good. This is a popular type of year to try for big fish running up from Lake Cayuga, but I can't get into that. One of my friends is really good at it and he still considers 1 fish a day pretty good, fishing most of the day. For me it's a good day if I even see a fish.

Fall Creek below Ithaca Falls is one of the most popular spots. The pool right at the falls has a good reputation, and there are several relatively decent spots all the way down to Cayuga Street. It's a very turbid creek in an urban setting, but it's your best chance around here to get into a fish without knowing one of the other rivers really well from experience (which I don't).

I've hardly been out fishing for the lake runs at all, and I've only seen a few. It's not like the Great Lakes tribs or anything.
