BRADDOCK BAY STATE PARK
The Braddock Bay Fish and Wildlife Management Area is a shallow water bay-marsh complex existing in five units along the Lake Ontario shoreline ranging from two to six miles west of Rochester. Going westerly from Rochester, these units include Buck Pond, Long Pond, Cranberry Pond, Braddock Bay and Rose Marsh. All of these ponds except Braddock Bay, are connected to the lake by intermittent channels, which plug and open up as lake currents and wave action change the character of the gravel and sand barrier bars.

This bay-marsh area provides excellent waterfowl nesting, resting and feeding habitats. Puddle ducks, particularly mallards, blue-winged teal and wood ducks are common nesters. During the spring and fall migrations, all waterfowl common to the Atlantic flyway utilize the area including scarce species such as brant, Barrow's goldeneye and the Harlequin duck. The primary wildlife objectives for this area are to maximize waterfowl production and provide prime feeding and resting areas for migratory waterfowl.

Management will include level ditching to improve marsh interspersion and the establishment of grasslands and nesting islands to encourage waterfowl nesting. Other management activities may include erection of wood duck nest structures, controlled burns, purple loosestrife control and waterfowl surveys. Future activities on the Braddock Bay Fish and Wildlife Management Area may include the construction of a fishing pier and additional parking areas and/or overlooks. Educational opportunities will also be expanded promoting the wetlands ands their associated wildlife.
