Fishing Report for week of June 11, 2018

Leech Lake

It was a great week on Leech Lake this past week with many days of anglers pulling in keeper fish to take home and also some big ones too boot.  The lake has transitioned greatly since late May and it is showing with the walleyes being on the move. Throughout the lake you can find walleyes being caught along breaklines in 12-20 feet of water.  It is important to look for transition areas, weed edges, or key features along the breaklines to hold these fish and if you are seeing bait fish are in the area. Pulling crawlers and leeches on lindy rigs is still working best, but the spinner bite will start to turn on with the bug hatch starting on the lake along with crankbaits.  There are still some walleyes being caught on Jigs and minnows and leeches especially on windy days in 6-10 feet of water.


Look to the main lake rock reefs and points that have wind blowing on them right now to produce the best fish.  Annex, Submarine, North Bar, Big Rock Reef, etc will all be good places to start your search. There are still fish being caught on the West end of the lake on the flats around Goose Island as well in 10-13 feet of water.  Walker Bay, Agency Bay, and Kabekona Bay have also been producing fish at times, but it really depends on the day it seems.
