Do you rent out canoes?

What parts of Nine Mile can I canoe/kayak on?

  • Technically, from the Martisco railroad bridge on the border of the towns of Marcellus and Camillus, and downstream is navigable, but practically the highest you should put in is at Munro Park in the Village of Camillus.

What parts of Nine Mile can I fish in?

  • All parts of the Creek (where there is public access) provide fishing action, if you are fishing for trout in particular the best spots are downstream of Marcellus Falls, where there is a large influx of cold groundwater. See the fishing page for more details
