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.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
