Leeches in early fall

4 posts in this topic

We will be up Sept. 8-14. We usually come up in the spring,but will be trying the early fall bite also this year. We use leeches in the spring and buy them by the pound on the way up in the Superior / Duluth area. Will there be any trouble getting leeches this time of year?

It may be difficult to get leeches at that time. All bait has been difficult to get this year because of the warm dry weather. Give us a call or email me (my email is on the website) and I can let you know at least what our supply is, we normally have them later than most places because our supplier has holding tanks to keep the leeches later on.

Thanks Dave, we just checked with our usual bait shop and they where not sure if they would have any or not by then. We go through a pound per guy for the week. I will check with you prior to leaving for our trip.Thanks

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
