Jamesville Reservoir is located near the Village of Jamesville. The reservoir was formed by the impounding of a section of Butternut Creek. Like many of the area reservoirs, it was originally constructed to supply water to the Erie Canal. Jamesville Beach County Park borders most of the south west corner of the reservoir. The main gamefish in the reservoir are largemouth and smallmouth bass, chain pickerel, tiger musky and walleye. White perch, pumpkinseed sunfish, bluegill, black crappie, and yellow perch are also found in the reservoir.
