This gateway to the Finger Lakes Region offers an eclectic mix of urban flavor and historic canal-side charm. Rochester is the urban center and home to museums, street jazz and High Falls, a 96-foot city waterfall. Wineries and vineyards are continuously popping-up in the eastern and southern portions of the county, filling the gaps between quaint, charming villages.

From Lake Ontario to the Genesee River, to Sandy Creek and Irondequoit Bay, Monroe County has some of the finest fishing in the nation. King salmon, coho salmon, Atlantic salmon, lake trout, brown trout, rainbow trout, steelhead, walleye, pike, largemouth and small mouth bass, perch and panfish are some of the many varieties you will find here. We encourage you to spend some time on the water fishing and visiting this great area with many things to do for the entire family!
