Fishing Tips for Owasco Lake

on April 20th
For those of you who don’t know Owasci Lake is used for drinking water (in fact it won an award for it in 1996). The fish must like the water too because the fish are good here. The rainbow trout average 24 inches, the lake trout average 20 inches, the bass found here typically run about 2lbs, perch here are somewhat common to 1lb, brown trout here don’t grow as big but you can still find a few up to 7lbs, and stocked walleyes found here can grow up to 30 inches but only average 19 inches.
Because the lake is narrow and deep (177 foot max) so the structure is limited. Basically it’s made up of drop-offs, weedlines, and the shallow ends of the lake. If you want to catch warmwater fish try fishing the shallow ends of the lake and the drop offs down to 30 or 40 feet. From there the coldwater fish take over. Look for depths where the water temps are as close to the 50s as possible. The usual lures and techniques work here.
Good luck fishing!
