Waneta Lake

Waneta Lake is a 780 acre lake located in northwestern Schuyler County about two miles west of Tyrone. Although they are not Finger Lakes both Waneta Lake and Lamoka Lake offer the same vast opportunities for water sports, fishing, and relaxing just as the Finger Lakes do. They are connected by a 0.7 mile canal that flows through the Waneta-Lamoka Wildlife Management Area. Except for the southern most portion of the lake, the shoreline is composed of year round and seasonal homes and cottages. Waneta Lake is a popular musky fishing destination for anglers in the north east. Known as the fish of 10,000 casts this lake allows the chance of a lifetime to net a fish as large as 50+ inches.
