As of 10 am this morning the Oneida Lake area has received anywhere between 9 and 11 inches of new snow, it continues to snow now and we are expecting more off the back end of this storm. Fishing has been a grind, with many people out over the last four days we have only received a few reports of folks grabbing limits, the walleye tend to be lookers. Most of the better reports came in from the south shore in 20+ FOW, the fish along the east shore were pretty tight-lipped. Some beautiful yellow perch were taken as well, but not in some of the numbers we had been seeing last week. We are not sure if that is because simply more people accessed the lake from the south shore, which had better ice conditions, or if the fishing is just better on that side. We will probably get that answer in the next couple of days as more and more people work the north shore. We have gotten several reports of a hole that has been cut to the west of Lewis Point, the dangerous area is unmarked, and with it likely skimming over last night with fresh snow, we have a very dangerous situation. Another report of a similar hole off Phillips Point, just west of Constantia, similar situation. The last batch of reports show 6-7″ of ice and machines are out more frequently now, but many cracks and equipment recoveries over the weekend. Breezy tomorrow and some rain on Friday may help things, we remain under freezing for the most part with just a few hours above the magic number on Thursday and then again on Friday. Hoping the rain on Friday does not make for lousy conditions for the walkers over the weekend.
