Fishing is a popular activity at Fiddlers Green. Anglers come to the park for both wild and stocked brown trout, although brook trout and are sometimes caught as well. Each year the Onondaga County’s Carpenter’s Brook Fish Hatchery stocks Butternut Creek with roughly 5,200 yearling brown trout (8-9”), 2,400 two-year-old brown trout (12-14”) and 600 brook trout (8-10”). Statewide regulations for trout specify that any size may be taken, with a limit of 5; no more than 2 of the 5 can be longer than 12”. The season runs from April 1 through October 15.
There are a number of picnic tables available on the main level at Fiddlers Green Park. There is also a picnic table along the trail that runs across the middle of the hill on the left side of the park. Two parking areas are available, one at the bottom of the park off Solvay Road and one at the upper end of the park off Solvay Road (Link to map here).
Future plans include restrooms and a gazebo and cleared area on the main level of the park for gatherings.
