The combined effects of the Honeywell clean-up and the zebra mussels have resulted in crystal clear water in which huge carp and other fish are not only highly visible but abundant. We will paddle off the shoreline so that we can observe the fish and heron and other wildlife; then back to the launch area - note the directions and map below.
We will meet at the launch site at Longbranch Park at 12:00 PM The park is located at the north end of Onondaga Lake (See map below). Please be sure that you are properly dressed for the paddle and have all appropriate equipment.
Directions To The Launch Site: Take Route 370 north from the village of Liverpool. After you cross the bridge over the NYS Thruway, turn left onto Longbranch Road.
