Any recent fishing reports from Leech Lake?

3 posts in this topic

I am heading up to Leech for several days in mid September and wonder if anyone has been out on the lake and would care to report on the angling. I will be fishing primarily in the Sucker Bay area. I hope that the low water levels will not prevent me from getting my boat in the water. It is currently at a 30 year low. Thanks

Hello Duck2...asked this same question before i went up over labor day...evidently no one has any reports for us...so anyway I got one walleye trolling in 10-15ft with a pearch shad rap...the resort owner said its typically slow this time of year heating up late september early october. So i say depending on what your going after just throw everything at them and see what happens. Its such a great lake actually catching fish is just a bonus.

I hear the walleyes are back up shallower. Work points and rocks (call it 22-15 feet). Or, just outside the weedlines. More notherns than in the past few years, a good sign. They are still shooting comerants, which is nice to see.

      when i fish for pike or muskie i use 40-50lb braid and an 80# fluoro leader about 12" that I make myself...never had a bite-off and have reused leaders over and over again...oh, and have caught plenty with this set up

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.

      There's a few really good cat spots in that stretch.  It won't be long and it will all be open.
