Leisure Outdoor Adventure — Fishing Report

April 21, 2017

Leech Lake area is no change from prior week.  Water temps have dropped from the cool weather but the perch bite continues to be consistent. Try Walker Narrows, Agency Narrows, or any of the Bays on the south end such as Miller and Boy Bay.  We need some sunny and warmer days to help push fish into their shallow staging areas before spawn.  Look to 4-6 feet of wather with a 1/16th oz jig and a minnow to be the ticket for jumbos.

Surface temps (which can fluctuate rapidly this time of year) were already in the high 40’s and even low 50s in a few places.  We were not able to find any crappies or bluegills yet in traditional early spring areas, however believe we are not more than a couple days away and did find some near by their spawning areas.

More to come next week!

  1. Hello,

    We have made a trip to leech lake for the past 20 years and have not done a guided fishing trip in a while. Our week long stay begins on July 26 and ends August 1. I was wondering what your rates would be for taking a group of 3/4 for a half day walleye fishing trip and also a full day rate? We stay each year at Anderson’s Northland Lodge.


    • James,
      Thank you for visiting our area, we are so happy you keep coming back. I would check with Northland first to see if they do any fishing tours or who they would recommend. If they can not help you, check out our fishing guides on line at leech-lake.com. I am going to pass your email on to Northland and hopefully they will get back to you.

  2. Water levels are low in the winter months. Although fish are still lethargic, the water has begn to warm up and early spring can be a good time to catch largemouth , spotted bass, and crappie at this impoundment. Minnows are often good bait this time of year, as we get closer to spawn try your spinners and jigs!

  3. Good morning,

    We will be there this Friday, wondering what the water levels are like?


    Thank you,


  4. I just like the helpful information you provide for your articles. I’ll bookmark your weblog and check again here frequently. I’m reasonably certain I will be informed a lot of new stuff right right here! Best of luck for the next!

  5. I am heading up to leech Sept 27th, staying in Agency Bay unfamiliar with the lake. Is their fish around that bay or do I need to head to the big part of the lake, thanks

  6. I really appreciate the insight here in this post and confident it’s going to be helpful to me and many others. I’m wondering if you or anyone else has additional sources for me to read further and to be able to dig a little deeper?
