Fishing Report for the week of July 23

Steve Nosbisch Fishing Guide

Fishing is starting to pick back up on Leech Lake. Walleyes are becoming more abundant, and the Muskie fishing has been decent. Walleyes are scattered around the deeper flats in 12-16 feet of water. Pulling crankbaits in perch and crayfish patterns near the bottom has produced some really nice fish this week. Areas around Pine Point, Goose Island, Stony Point, and Hardwoods Point are good places to start your search.

The Muskies are showing up on their summer haunts now. Use bucktails and topwaters to locate fish, then go back to those areas at prime times to get them to bite.

The Bass and Northern Pike bite has been very good in the shallow bays. Casting spinnerbaits and spoons around the shallow weeds will surely produce bass and pike.
