Skaneateles is Iroquois for “long lake.” The Indians said it slowly and solemnly: sken-ee-at-less. Contemporaries pronounce it skinny-atlas, like it’s an anorexic version of the famous figure in Greek mythology. Almost exclusively spring fed, this 8,700-acre lake averages 145 feet deep and has a maximum depth of 300 feet. Key species: Lake trout, rainbow trout, landlocked Atlantic salmon, cisco, smallmouth bass, and yellow perch
