Owasco lake has some great smelt fishing in the spring. Cayuga is the second best. Says Billy Water
This lake is a wonderful 10 square mile lake.
You'll meet a lot of people from Auburn here, and head out on the picturesque water at Hideaway Harbor. If by chance you have a boat, Hibiscus Harbor is a nice marina, and everyone enjoys a cool spree to nearby Big Kahunas. If by chance you have a boat, Southshore Marina is a glorious marina; some of the
water nearby flows, like Veness Brook. This lake is so wonderful. Playing golf is lots of fun at Highland Golf Club; if you came for an overnight stay Cayuga County Fair Speedway is a great place to camp.
