It will be about 13F around wake up time today and that is as warm as it is going to get with temperatures dropping from noon on to a low below zero tonight. We are starting the day with just a light dusting of snow overnight and light winds, which will pick up as the day goes on–especially in the afternoon. The forecast is calling for wind over 20mph out of the west. Most of the snow is expected to stay up north of Oneida Lake, with the area again getting just a dusting today.
Getting solid reports for walleye continuing to come in on both the north and south shores, really aggressive early morning and early evening (20-28 FOW). A lot of shorts mixed in, which while frustrating is a good sign for the lake. A quick move is your friend in that case. A lot of people are grabbing the eyes and then moving into more shallow water for some of the best perch fishing in recent memory (10-18 FOW). Machines continue to be working well, we are getting more reports of cracks this week, so keep that in mind. Access remains great though across the lake and travel is good.
It will be interesting to see how things play out with the wind chills the next couple of days. Relief is coming soon. Please stay safe out there.
