Walleye report from Oneida Lake 6/30

Now that is a nice batch of walleyes and those Oneida lake walleyes are very tasty and fat. Dave says that they are getting them along the weed lines in 15 feet of water using crawler harnesses. I also had a report two days ago from another group that was using Rappalas on lead core line. This tells me that the bite is on and you might want to think about spending 4th of July here. I also just got a report from my buddy Jason Lawrence and he and his partner took first in a tournament there last Sunday with a 5 fish stringer that weighed 13.97 #. He told me was going to win it and he was right as usual. Always watch the weather on this lake in that it can blow up in a heartbeat because of the relative shallowness of Oneida.

Over 40 fish were taken inside a 2 day stretch at Papa Bear’s Outdoors Adirondack Retreats. Many trout taken in the 17-19″ range, several more larger trout were broken off. Browns, Rainbows, and Brookies were all brought to net over a fantastic weekend in the Adirondacks. More pictures can be viewed here.

Custom tied stonefly patterns have taken the majority of the trout in June. The largest trout seem to be holding in the deepest pools on the property, are holed up due to the drop in water level, and generally like to hold in the heads of the riffles of the deepest runs available.
