SPECIAL REGULATIONS ALLOW FOR YEAR-ROUND ANGLING ON LAKE OZONIA.
Lake Ozonia is essentially trout water, but anglers should not overlook the warmwater fishing on these lakes. Ozonia has smallmouth bass and panfish; yellow perch are particularly abundant. Look for fish along weededges, shoreline cover, tributary mouths, and rocky areas.
This 397-acre lake receives annual stockings of rainbow trout and splake numbering 5,000. In recent years, Lake Ozonia has also been stocked with lake trout, landlocked salmon, and two-year-old browns. A DEC cartop launch located off the Lake Ozonia Road offers year-round access. The launch site has a ten-horsepower restriction on outboard motors. Whether anglers use a gas or electric-powered motor, trolling is the preferred fishing technique. Spring and autumn produce the best results, and prime trolling spots include shorelines, bays, and points. Some anglers troll flies on a sinking fly line, some troll small minnow plugs using leadcore line, and others use monofilament line to troll Lake Clear wabbler and worm rigs.
