Fishing Report for week of June 14, 2021

Brought to us by Fish On Outdoors with Bill Hornung

Roll With It!

Fishing is improving! Fish seem to have adjusted to quickly warming water temps. Area lakes are in the mid 70’s or low 80’s. West winds and slowing bug hatches have made walleye fishing better. Crawlers have been the bait of choice, either rigged or jigged under floats. Leeches have also been working. It seems fish are already in July/summer patterns. Best tip for walleye: Keep moving and checking spots. You may have to leave fish that won’t bite to look for others that will.

Crappie- Small jigs along weedlines near dark is still working

Bass- Find rocks, find smallmouth bass. Largemouth bass are relating to weedlines. Some fish were caught on top water baits but most are on senko baits along weed edges.


Good Luck!

Leech lake continues to transition through vary seasonal patterns and we are only in June! However, with water temperatures in the 70’s, some things are coming into focus. Spinners, are producing with mayfly hatch expanding by the day. Lindy rigs and or leeches will produce as will slip bobbers tipped with a leech. As fish slide deeper, keep the jig rap rod handy as well. Area to check out include, The Annex, Ottertail and Mokey.

Good luck and make a memory!
