Fly Fishing at Ithaca Falls

Ithaca Falls is one of the largest and most beautiful waterfalls in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York, and indeed in the state as a whole. Fall colors add to its beauty each autumn. It’s an easily accessible, remarkable place to immerse oneself in the wonder of Fall Creek Gorge and the power of the large waterfall.

A man tries his luck fly fishing from the shore of Fall Creek below Ithaca Falls.

In spring and fall, brown trout, salmon, and rainbow trout work their way upstream from Cayuga Lake on spawning runs, and these in turn attract fly fishing enthusiasts. Watch my short video (2 min. 39 sec.) displaying the beauty of Ithaca Falls and the patience of fly fishermen, below.
