ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
Onteora Lake can provide some really good action for anglers targeting bass. The bass like to hang around the shoreline structure, especially the trees that have fallen into the lake. Try fishing a weedless jig or a weedless soft-plastic bait to pull the largemouth out of the cover. In the morning and evening hours, try top water plugs to get an aggresive fish to bite.

Bluegills are the most common panfish and provide great action for anglers using ultra-light gear. Small jigs and live bait are the best bet for catching bluegills. Ice fishing at Onteora Lake also provides anglers with opportunities to catch many panfish.
