Ready, Set, Go

by beats143 • May 1, 2015 • No Comments

Talked to a few business owners along the lake. With the late ice out, everyone has had to pack a lot of work into a short period of time but everyone is feeling good about their readiness. So in just twelve hours walleye will be back underway with several tournaments[…]

Wind, Snow, and a Spider

by beats143 • April 23, 2015 • No Comments

Pretty rough and cold day out there again today, we actually got some snow. For a couple days, it looked like the water level was coming down but it’s back up again. The tributaries are still raging. So not much action to report–I’ll focus on some administrative mishegoss while we[…]

Pretty rough out there today for fishing–with some serious winds. The 37th Annual Walleye Derby by the Cicero Mattydale Lions Club is scheduled for May 2 and 3, 2015. This year’s entry fee is $10 and the Derby Headquarters is at Bartel Road Bait & Tackle in Brewerton, Exit 31[…]

Ice Out

A few days later than last year, but she is finally clear of ice. The lake level continues to rise and is now around 371.5. We have avoided shore damage this year, here is hoping that we don’t run into flooding now. With the water high and the run off[…]

Keeping Our Fingers Crossed

So far the ice has been gentle on Oneida Lake. Checked out Sylvan Beach yesterday and it was loaded with people hitting the bars and restaurants, which was nice to see. Very little ice accumulation with no wind yesterday. The melt is going very slow, but it’s going to be[…]

Slowly Melting

by beats143 • April 10, 2015 • No Comments

Actually saw more than a few boats out this week working the south bay area near Oneida Creek. Some others are working shoreline areas of the Oneida River for panfish. Last I heard of anyone on the actual ice–it had to be pretty sketchy–was as late as Wednesday, so a[…]

The Melt is On

by beats143 • April 6, 2015 • No Comments

Shore areas have fallen apart and people are wisely staying off the lake at this point. Warm temperatures and rain in the forecast all week. I imagine we will see boat traffic soon. I think the lake will be largely ice free by the end of the weekend.

An Odd Year

by beats143 • March 16, 2015 • No Comments

With walleye now closed for the season and conditions stuck in the muck zone now for weeks, many have opted to pack their ice gear up and call it a year. For those of you sticking it out, we should start to see some better ice conditions out there. After[…]

Firmed Up Friday

by beats143 • March 13, 2015 • No Comments

Well it was plenty cold last night and things firmed back up again. We are supposed to get to 45F today but as of noonish, we are still at 30F and the sun is hidden behind some cloud activity. Really not getting much melting as of yet, as I stepped[…]

Some Fish With Your Soup?

by beats143 • March 11, 2015 • No Comments

Well we stayed in the upper 30s last night and the rain missed most of the lake, call it a glancing blow. From the radar it looked like it might have brushed the SE corner of Oneida Lake, but I don’t have any actual confirmation. We will reach a high[…]

A Warm One

by beats143 • March 10, 2015 • No Comments

A high of 47F today and the low tonight is 35F so we are not going to see a refreeze for tomorrow. Wednesday the high will reach 41F and winds are reasonable both days. As far as the weekend goes, right now Sunday looks to be a better day with[…]
