Oneida Lake

Oneida Lake, located ten miles north of Syracuse in Oneida and Oswego Counties, is the largest lake lying wholly within New York State. Oneida Lake is a relatively shallow natural lake with an average depth of 22 feet and is named for the Iroquois Nation Oneida Tribe. The Oneidas called the lake "Tsioqui" or "white water", a reference to the wave action on the lake on windy days.

Physical Features

Elevation: 370 Feet
Area: 50,894 acres
Length: 21 miles
Maximum Width: 5.5 Miles
Maximum Depth: 55 Feet

Plant Life

Since zebra mussels entered the lake in the early 1990's water clarity has improved considerably. This has resulted in increased aquatic vegetation growth. Oneida Lake has very good weed growth, especially along the shoreline and in the larger bays. Vegetation is most abundant in 5 to 15 feet of water; however with the greater water clarity some vegetation may be found as deep as 20 feet.

General Fishing Information

Gamefish present include walleye, smallmouth and largemouth bass, northern pike, pickerel and tiger musky. Panfish present include yellow perch, black crappie, bluegill, pumpkinseed sunfish, white perch, white bass and bullhead. Channel catfish, freshwater drum (sheephead), and carp are also found in good numbers. Oneida Lake is a fantastic bass fishing location, and numerous bass fishing tournaments are held each year on the lake. Oneida Lake has become a popular tournament stop for professional bass fishing organizations such as BASSMASTER and FLW. Smallmouth bass can be caught around the many shoals on crayfish, minnows, tube baits and crankbaits. Largemouth bass are found in the larger bays and anywhere there is good vegetation growth. Spinnerbaits , crankbaits, topwaters, jigs, tube baits, rubber worms and minnows all work well.
