Leech Ice Conditions?

5 posts in this topic

I will be fishing on Leech this weekend and was wondering if anyone has any current ice conditions? Last I heard there was 3-4 inches of ice on the main lake before the snow fell. Has this created a lot of slush pockets? How about in walker bay? Are people taking sleds or wheelers out?

I was in walker yesterday and the only people I saw as far as being on the walker bay part of the lake is just west of the casino on the north side. I didn't see anybody on the main bay.

I was up on Leech this weekend and checked the ice around the Welches Bay west of Sand point and it was flooded with mayb 6 inches of ice. 2-3 inches of water and then another 8 inches of snow. Not good. I did hear that there was someone heading up along the shore to Sand Point via wheeler from the Kabakona/Walker access by the channel. Not sure how far but tracks were heading out that way. I'm not even close to feeling comfortable fishing any lakes up that far. With all the cold temps in the minus degress and we only have 6-7 inches just isn't looking good. I'm sure most places will be flooded so just expect water on the ice for sure. Oh too that bay was even frozen over before the thanksgiving weekend.

Good Luck,

mr

Got out fishing on leech this weekend. Off of Pine Point we found about 7"-9" of ice covered by 2"-8" of snow. There were a few areas of slush in spots. Fishing was slow for us. Showed a lot of fish on the vexilar but did not have many perch want to bite. We accessed the lake via Grand Vu Lodge ($5). The Pine Point resort access that was used last year is closed. The driveway has a chain across it and there are no trespassing signs posted.
