Steuben County and the Finger Lakes region offer some of the best environments for hunting and fishing in New York. With over 28,000 acres of state managed land, and lakes and rivers stocked with over 30,000 trout annually, Corning & the Finger Lakes is the ultimate destination for avid sportsmen.

Steuben County Hunting

Steuben County has more deer per square mile than any other county in New York, and with 28,000 acres of state managed land, the best hunting land in Upstate New York can be found in the Finger Lakes. Whether you're a recreational hunter or a professional sportsman, Corning is the place to find that trophy whitetail deer, or get that turkey before Thanksgiving. The region offers a wide variety of hunting guide services that offer everything from hunting camps and gear to tours and guided hunts.

Fishing in the Finger Lakes

If fishing is what gets you outside, grab your tackle box and head to the Finger Lakes. With lakes, rivers, and streams everywhere you look, Steuben County offers countless opportunities for full days of non-stop fishing action. Cast your line in Keuka Lake or the Conhocton River, and enjoy a fun day on the water.

If you're a beginner, test the waters during New York's Free Fishing Days, where you don't need a fishing license to fall in love with the sport. And make sure you check out our local fishing tips for advice straight from the people that know the waters best!
