12-year-old Oneida Lake Derby winner reels in a 24-inch Walleye

Local News

This year’s Walleye Derby may have had a smaller turnout because of the weather, but their big winner wasn’t who you might expect.

12-year-old Nicholas Nolan was this weekend’s winner— he reeled in a 24-inch Walleye weighing in just under five and a half pounds. Along with the fish, he also got a $1,500 prize.

Organizers say there are still plenty of Walleye in Oneida Lake— 430,000 to be exact.
