I've only ever caught then through the ice on the Sacandaga and that was almost 20 years ago now. What's your plan?

With temps in the 40's and rain in the forecast for Saturday I plan to wait until next week to go out. I may try Oneida, Conesus or Otisco but haven't decided yet. St. Lawrence and Lake Erie are my favorites but after the water warms up some.

going to Oswego river to try for monsters on Thursday night. We fish all night in a boat. Last time we went we didn't get a thing (few years ago) taking my father there for his birthday so hoping for better luck.

The Raquette River, just below the rapids can be productive. An overnight stay at the leantos.
Carry Falls Reservoir is good also.
Fish the rapids across from the campsite.
The area around the mouth of the Jordan River is usually good fishing.

Would the Black River between Carthage and Watertown be good or the Oswegatchie below the dams? How about Black Lake where the river runs in?

I've been told below the Spier Falls dam(Corinth) on the Hudson is supposed to be pretty good.

I have a friend who's done well at Henderson Harbor.

I always looked forward to a camping and fishing trip on the Raquette.
Fish for walleyes at the bottom of the rapids and fish for brookies on an unnamed pond.

The Mohawk River is good for walleye too.

This time of year is tough. Turkeys always win out for me with trout a close second. I don't know where I'd get the time to chase stripers or walleyes, but I'd sure love to have it. Go get em!

That's true, Eagle.
But it lacks the camping experience.

There's nothing better than waking up early at the leanto below the rapids.

Fished Tupper this weekend with very little luck. Ended up catching a couple largemouth but that was about it. Only saw one small walleye and two bruiser smallmouth caught from the 8+ boats fishing around the falls. At least the weather held up some and it wasn't a cold steady rain

Very nice walleye! You have been rewarded for coming back to try again. Great that you could enjoy it with your Dad. Thanks for sharing. What did you catch them on?
