There is shoreline fishing and a concrete boat launch with car/trailer parking in Braddock Bay State Park / Wildlife Management Area on Manitou Road that is managed by the Town of Greece.

Fish Species:

Bowfin, Northern Pike, Chain Pickerel, Channel Catfish, Brown Bullhead, Rock Bass, Pumpkinseed, Bluegill, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Black Crappie, Walleye, Yellow Perch.


Good Northern Pike and Yellow Perch fishing through the ice when safe ice develops. In most years, the early spring fishing for Yellow Perch, Brown Bullhead, and White Perch can be outstanding. Northern Pike, Chain Pickerel, Largemouth Bass, Sunfish, Yellow Perch can be caught during the open water season. A spinnerbait or stickbait, like a rapala, works well in shallow weedy water, for the gamefish. For the panfish try worms fished under a bobber or small plastic tube baits or twister tails.

Ice Fishing:

Ice Fishing is permitted in Braddock Bay.
