Fishing Report for Leech Lake

Fishing Report for the week of August 25, 2019

Leech Lake

Walleye fishing has been on the up tick of late with fish hanging in 12-20 feet of water most days.  Anywhere you can find sand and weed edges seems to be the best right now or scattered rock and gravel.  The deeper bite hasn’t been as good, but better for bigger fish, just not a numbers bite. Try dragging lindy rigs with crawlers, big minnows, or rainbows along breaklines or the edges of humps.  Jigs with leeches are still producing fish as well as slip bobbers within the weeds.

The crankbait bite has been best on the Main Lake still.  Trolling #5 or #7 Shad Raps or Flicker Shads is a great tractic along the edges of the Main Lake Rock Reefs early in the morning or evenings.  Leadcore in the basin areas is the best bet during daylight hours.

Musky fishing has been overall pretty good the past two weeks.  Fish have been actively moving and are being found on main lake rocks, weedlines, and sand breaks as well.  Casting large rubber baits, twitch style jerk baits, top waters, or burning bucktails are your best tactics.
