In our lake, the Walleye can be found off rocky points, between islands and at the mouths of streams. The most popular baits are jigs with white, black, chartreuse or yellow twister-tails. Some of the bigger trophy Walleyes can be taken in the evening or at night by trolling along the shoreline with a floating Rapala or Thunderstick. The hot colors are Fire Tiger, blue, silver and red. Later in the summer they hit the golden brown colors. Their favourite bait is leeches and will also hit minnows or worms.
Lake Onaping is in the Ontario Walleye Stocking Program. Between 2003 and 2005, the MNR stocked 43,640 Walleyes into the lake.
