Naples Creek Description of Fishery
About Public Fishing Rights
Naples Creek flows through southern Ontario County and empties into Canandaigua Lake in Yates County. Naples Creek and its tributaries are well known for their spring runs of wild rainbow trout. Many anglers come to Naples Creek each year in search of trophy rainbow trout. Grimes Creek, a tributary of Naples Creek, also supports wild brown and brook trout in its upper reaches. Finger Lakes tributary regulations apply. Please consult the New York Freshwater Fishing Official Regulations Guide.
Public Fishing Rights (PFR’s) are permanent easements purchased by the NYSDEC from willing landowners, giving anglers the right to fish and walk along the bank (usually a 33’ strip on one or both banks of the stream). This right is for the purpose of fishing only and no other purpose. Treat the land with respect to insure the continuation of this right and privilege. Fishing privileges may be available on some other private lands with permission of the land owner. Courtesy toward the land-owner and respect for their property will insure their continued use.
