Named after the Iroquois word for “finger lying,” this 1,772-acre lake averages 13 feet deep and has a maximum depth of 30 feet. Its banks are lined with private residences. An above average warm-water fishery, Honeoye has good populations of largemouths running from 2 to 4 pounds and smallmouths ranging from 1.5 to 3 pounds. The lake is the preferred practice site of Rochester-area pros honing their bass-fishing techniques. The fish get stuck so often, they develop a savvy that’s legendary in these parts. Still, largemouths can be fooled with YUM Samurai Shads, jig-’n’-pigs, and worms fished whacky-style. Key species: Walleye, chain pickerel, black bass, black crappie, yellow perch, rock bass, and sunfish
