Fisherman Friendly

Oneida Lake is best known for its walleye and yellow perch fishery. Game fish present in the lake include walleye, smallmouth and largemouth bass, northern pike, pickerel and tiger musky. The average lake depth is 22 feet. Stand in Onondaga County and fish off the dock, on the property, and your fishing line is in Oswego County.  Neat!

Lake physical features:
Elevation 370 feet – Max width 5.5miles
Area 50,894 Acres – Length 21 miles
Max depth 55 feet

Salmon fishing enthusiast can fly fish at Brewerton North Wall, a 3 minute walk from the Stone House Cottage, or on the Salmon River in nearby Pulaski.

Brewerton North Wall: Located on the north bank, on the east side of the US Rte 11 bridge, this concrete structure offers shore anglers a good casting platform for open water walleyes in spring and fall, and smallmouth bass and panfish all summer long. The shallow and weedy inside channel holds largemouth bass, northern pike and panfish.  Click here for fishing information on the Visit Oswego site or here for more information on where to fish from the DEC.
