Oneida Walleye Survey
« on: Jun 29, 2020, 08:41 AM »
Below is a link to a DEC survey asking for input on changing the daily bag limit from 3 walleyes at 15" to 5 walleyes at 15" on Oneida Lake.

It is a very short survey. Please take the time to complete it. It will be available until Wednesday July 8th.

Pretty basic survey.  Looks suspiciously like they just need a little more justification to increase the limit to five. Thatís great if they do.  I live almost exactly equal distant between Dunkirk on Erie and Sylvan beach.  6 fish on Erie compared to three on Oneida makes me head west and not east. If the limit is changed, my car navigation is going to get very confused in the mornings 😁

It is my understanding that there is some rough criteria around the limits.

around 250,000 adult fish is a trigger
around 750,000 adult fish is a trigger

When we got down to the 250,000 fish mark is when the size limit went to 3 fish at 18". Once we got safely above there we went to a 15" size limit. Now we are above 750,000 and they are ready to possibly make another change.

I like the idea that we can have some input on this.
