Walleye by canoe

I'm new to the forum, but was wondering if there are any "quieter" lakes that have decent walleye fishing, which I can access with my canoe? not so much interested in the bigger bodies of water. Thanks

I hate to tell you Woody, but the last thing anyone is going to do on a forum like this is broadcast walleye waters. With some legwork, you should be able to find what you are looking for: https://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/87391.html

Woody,
The good old Raquette River is a great place to paddle and fish.
Put your canoe in at Axton landing, paddle upstream as far as you care to and fish the deep holes for Walleyes, Pike and Smallmouths.
There's gonna be a lot of recreational paddlers coming down the river, but it's easy to work around them.

Thanks for proving me wrong, and I mean that in a sincere manner!

I didn't post that to prove you wrong, Buck. Or me right, for that matter.
We all have our favorite places and try to protect them from overuse.
The Raquette's one of my favorite places but it's big river with lots places to fish.

Knowing where and knowing how and when are two different topics.

No problem at all. I just know how protective anglers can be of trout and walleye waters and I didn't expect the original poster to get much response.

A few years a back a local private lake homeowner's association asked me what I thought about them putting walleyes in the lake. I told them it would be great if they could keep a lid on it, otherwise every angler around would be trying to find ways to get at them, especially in winter. They didn't believe me, until some of the hardy anglers who live on the lake chimed in with the same response. The lake doesn't have good spawning habitat anyway.
