Fishing Reports

Fishing is a year-round activity in Oneida County, and hundreds of lakes offer everything from walleye, bass, and panfish to northern pike and musky. During the early spring, anglers target panfish, particularly crappie. As the waters warm, attention turns to smallmouth and largemouth bass as well as walleye and northern pike. During the summer, musky action begins to heat up—Oneida County has some of the best musky fishing in North America. Fall brings the best trophy musky fishing of the year.
