Limestone Creek

Limestone Creek within Mill Run Park

Limestone Creek, located in Onondaga County, begins as an outflow of DeRuyter Reservior and meanders for approximatley 25 miles to its confluence with Butternut Creek, which then flows into Chittenango Creek. Limestone Creek is a very popular trout fishing location as it is heavily stocked, supports good numbers of wild trout and flows through multiple metropolitan areas. There are 1.75 miles of PFR along Limestone Creek. There are no official PFR parking areas, so anglers use unoffical pulloffs along the stream. Anglers can find parking in the Villages of Manlius and Fayetteville. Stocked and wild brown and brook trout can be found in the creek, with wild brook trout being less common. The upper section of stream is small and brushed line, as you get below Rt. 20 the stream becomes wider and more open. This area from Rt. 20 to Fayetteville has the most suitable habitit for trout and is thus a popular fishing area. Most of the fishing pressure takes place during spring and early summer shortly after the trout are stocked. Limestone Creek may be fished ALL YEAR from the mouth of the creek to Route 20 with a current valid New York State fishing license.
