Fly Fishing Oneida Lake by Ryan Lewis on Sat, Aug 1
I spent summers on Oneida Lakes North shore as a kid. Im on my way back at the end of August and this time Im equipped with my fly rod. Im coming from Utah and have no idea what I should fish with on the lake. Any suggestions?

|Apparently fishing in Oneida is best around the 5-15 ft area and weedlines in the deeper water. I've only fished there twice with no real luck. The lake is shallow pretty far out most places, which kind of limits getting to the 5-15 ft. zone without a boat. Because of the shallow nature, it's often choppy as well. If I am not fishing surface poppers, I've found that using a sinking polyleader on my 6 wt. works well to get a Clouser down decently and still have the casting be reasonably pleasant. If you want more fun and more productive fishing, I would suggest getting someone to give you a quick ride up to the Salmon River for the day. Decent smallie fishing in the river in many spots.|

|I will be at a camp that I own right on the lake for the week. I will have a boat to use. Im wondering what flys I should be working for the Perch, Bass and Walleye fishing in the weeds. I am familiar with the dangers of the lake, my grandfather raised me to have the utmost respect for the lake and how quick it can change.
Fly’s to use, technique, depth?
