Delta Lake is a man made reservoir located about six miles north of Rome, NY. Delta Lake provides fishing for trout, pike, bass, perch, walleye, pickerel, and bullheads. It is also home to Delta Lake State Park. The park which opened in 1968 has over 100 campsites and covers over 400 acres.
The great walleye fishing that New York State has to offer is in large part due to the efforts of the Oneida Fish Hatchery. Oneida Lake provides all of the walleye eggs for New York's stocking program. Each year DEC produces approximately 300,000 pond-reared, 190,000 intensively reared, and 190,000,000 walleye fry to be stocked into more than 50 diffrent bodies of waters across the state.
