  1. This is probably the wrong place to post this so mods feel free to move it... But my son (young adult) is an avid fly fisherman. We are from pa but will be spending a lot of time around otisco lake this year. Are there any good trout streams close by? Stocked or wild. He is pretty much 100% catch and release.

  2. I havent posted much on here this spring/summer due to the fact everyone seem's to be doing well on Otisco and the site has become too much of a brag board for my taste. We have had good discussions in the past on the lakes sustainability and past/future stocking program. A major discussion was the reason the DEC stopped stocking for a 3year period, I had been informed it was becasue they wanted to see if natural reproduction was occuring while others felt it was due to the lack of angler diary feedback. I contacted the DEC and have attached their response below. I was pretty confident in the reason for the three year hiatus but shocked to learn that Otisco is now on an every other year stocking program. Brent, We stopped stocking for three years in order to determine whether any significant natural reproduction was occurring. We were fairly certain that none was occuring but still had to confirm, as per our statewide walleye management guidelines. As expected we caught no wild produced walleye during the three years when stocking did not occur (because of alewife predation on walleye fry). Fortunately we were able to make the case that the walleye fishery is too good to walk away from and stocking was resumed. As of fall 2013 we completed a five year stocking "experiment" to determine whether our intensively reared walleye fingerlings from the Oneida Hatchery would work in Otisco Lake (and a number of other waters). Happily I can say that the survival of these walleye fingerlings in Otisco was similar to what we observed in the past from pond reared walleye fingerlings raised at our South Otselic Hatchery. Using the Oneida Hatchery in this way will essentially double the number of walleye fingerlings available for stocking around the state. However, even with these fish demand still is greater than supply. We are now managing the Otisco walleye fishery under a "Put-Grow-Take" scenario and 44,000 fingerlings will be stocked every other year.

  3. Due to a long honey due list, Turkey hunting, and my boat not in running order I had only 4hr's of walleye fishing to date and nothing to show for it, until last night. I found myself a spot off the usual beaten path of shore fisherman and settled in too the mooneyes doing their dance thing and walleyes slurping all around me. After an hour of casting I finally had one on I reached up to turn my hat light on and damn... the batteries are dead. After a few minutes I was luckily able to net the fish.. I walked up the bank and set the net down to take the lure out of her mouth she then decided to flop out of the net down the bank and back into the lake!!! It was almost 4am by then and I was too tired to filet her anyways. Atleast that's what I am going to tell people. LOL
  4. Has anyone had trouble trolling w lite line on Otisco Lake the past few years. It has been a while since I have fished it and didn't know if the fleas have invaded there or not. Thanks in advance to anyone that can give a little insight.
  5. I was wondering if anybody had any info on the walleye in Otisco
