The latest fishing report for Leech Lake says that fishing has been best off the north and south ends of Walker Bay in 25 to 35 feet.

Another place to try your hand on Leech Lake is Sand Point, which has produced a few walleyes and the occasional perch in 10 to 12 feet. Main-lake walleye reports have been limited to a few fish on the 12- to 20-foot structure.

If you decide to make the trip to Leech Lake for some ice fishing, why not make it a weekend event and book a stay at one of our many area resorts! The Leech Lake area offers a variety of resorts that are open in the winter and are the perfect place to relax after a long day on the lake and share you best ice fishing stories.

Many of the resorts even offer ice house rentals, so you can stay on the ice your entire weekend! Renting an ice house from one of the area resorts is convenient and will allow you to spend the most time possible doing what you love, fishing!

There is no better place to take an ice fishing getaway this winter than Leech Lake! Plan your trip today; we hope to see catch you soon out on the lake!
