It is becoming a well known fact that Onaman Lake is producing some very large Walleyes. This is something that Onaman Lake has not really been noted for in the past. Numbers have been the fame of Onaman Lake for many years not size. Times are changing, today there are many fish caught in the 24" to 27" range with many more even topping those figures. Eleven years ago the MNR made some regulation changes for Onaman Lake, earlier closing dates and later opening dates turned Onaman into a sanctuary until June 1st each year. In addition to that, the size and possession limits changed also. A regular license could posses one Walleye over 18" and 3 under 18". This would allow the spawners to grow and do what they are supposed to do, reproduce. At about the same time Carol and I purchased the fly-in cabins on Onaman Lake. We decided to do everything in our power to promote conservation on Onaman Lake. We offered all of our customers the opportunity to win 2 free trips each season if the used a conservation license, we also try to educate each and every guest on the importance of releasing the larger Walleyes. This is our eleventh season on Onaman Lake and trust me when I say, the fishery has improved. We now hear comments like âour arms are sore from catching so many fishâ, and âwhere are all of the small fishâ.
