Rochester offers a variety of exciting and unique options to enjoy and explore the great outdoors during the spring and summer months, and while residents wait for warmer temperatures and milder conditions to settle in. Here are just a few of the possibilities:
Embrace Scenic Snowy Conditions with Ice Fishing on the Genesee River
Join full- or half-day ice fishing excursions on the Genesee River, Lake Ontario, or Salmon River. Local company Let’s Catch Fish: Specialty Charters supplies beginners and experts all necessary equipment for casting a line and catching fish swimming under the ice. Members may receive exclusive pricing and discounts; discounts are also available for young children. Let’s Catch Fish asks patrons to bring weather appropriate clothing, polarized sunglasses, cameras, snacks, drinks, and food (including anything for special diet needs), and up-to-date fishing licenses, if applicable.
Enjoy Art During Spring and Summertime Exercising Rituals
