Lower Salmon Creek Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"After diving off the falls in Ludlowville, this scenic stream runs through a slate gorge for about 2 miles before feeding Cayuga Lake. This creek holds some rainbows between 6 and 12 inches year-round. Most anglers are drawn here, however, by its seasonal runs of brown trout (autumn) and rainbow trout (spring). Typically ranging from 2 to 6 pounds, both species hit egg sacs, worms, streamers, and nymphs.
This fee area offers twenty-five campsites; showers; a picnic area; shore access to Salmon Creek, its mouth, and Cayuga Lake; a paved ramp; and parking for about forty rigs. A day-use fee is charged noncampers in-season, mid-May through Columbus Day. Key species: Rainbow trout and brown trout"
