The lake is drawn down about 40 feet each winter. Anglers have access at two spots on the north side of the lake. The Balcom Beach area provides shore fishing access and a trailered boat launch. From Route 243, take Balcom Beach Road to Old State Road. Shore fishing access is also available on the north side of the Caneadea Dam, from the picnic area at the end of Lake Road (Formerly Dam Road). There is swimming at Rushford Lake Beach, the beach is at the intersection of Rush Creek Road and Co Road 49.  There is a small sand beach, grass lawn, and a medium to small swim area.
