Trout Fishing

Where can I trout fish in Western New York State?

I am looking for some recommendations to hopefully do some stream or river trout fishing while traveling to Rochester, NY from Philadelphia, PA and will be passing through Binghamton along the way. Diverting my trip a little bit for the fishing portion is not an issue. I am not that familiar with western NY so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the answers so far. Special regulations are not a problem, I will be using the fly rod.
And I will be doing catch and release with barbless hooks.

If you don't want to go out of your way and turn east toward the Catskills, then turn west toward me! Presumably, you will be travelling north on I-81. Turn west on Rte 17 or I-86 (same road). There are a number of streams with trout along the way. I am most familiar with Cayuta Creek, which you will cross at Waverly, NY. There are numerous public fishing access points to this stream from Route 34 and Route 224.

Farther west, you will be driving along the Conhocton River, which parallels the highway until I-390 turns off headed toward Rochester., along with the River, which remains accessible and fishable for several more miles.

Each of these streams has special regulation areas, meaning artificials only with non-standard creel limits.

Now I'll hand you off to someone from the Rochester area.
