Skaneateles Lake is so clean it is one of the water sources for the municipal water supply of Syracuse. It is surrounded by wooded hills, and the pleasant upscale Village of Skaneateles is at its north end. (Check out the Village's annual Dickens festival around the Xmas holidays.) You can take a narrated boat ride that tells of the many notable people who own the expensive homes along the lake, or you can use the public launch to get your own boat on the lake. Yes, there are fish in the lake, but expect to use gear for deeper water as the lake is quite deep.

Beautiful scenery. The foliage was at its peak and the lake is so clean. We sat in the park at the very end of the lake in the town of Skaneateles and just relaxed and enjoyed the view.

Nice spot, lots of cute shops and eateries. but you don't really interact with the lake unless you have property on it.

This has got to be one of the cleanest of the Finger Lakes, this was mid September so things were quite on the lake.
