Leech Lake Fishing Report for Dec 26, 2019

Thursday, December 26th, 2019

There’s been a bit more walleye activity on the shoreline breaks in Walker Bay, but ice depths still vary a lot so extreme caution is advised, especially the farther out you go. There’s also been some walleye activity on the main lake, primarily out from Pine Point, Trapper’s Landing, and Bear Island in 12 to 14 feet. Slush remains an issue in most areas, so it’s probably best to work through a resort or private access.

Leech Lake Fishing Report for Dec 19, 2019

Thursday, December 19th, 2019

Lake conditions remain sketchy and there hasn’t been much fishing activity as a result. Most areas of the lake have slush under the snow making travel difficult. On Walker Bay, ice depths range from 2 to 10 inches so moving around on it is not advised. Out of Trapper’s Landing, 8 to 10 inches of ice is being found, but slush is a concern in this area as well. They are working on getting a road system in place, although it was not ready early this week.

Leech Lake Fishing Report for Dec 12, 2019

Thursday, December 12th, 2019

Fishing activity continues to be limited, but ice conditions are improving. Walker Bay has been ice-covered for more than a week and although there wasn’t any anglers on it early this week, that could change by the weekend so call ahead. There is some foot traffic allowed out of Trapper’s Landing Lodge where up to 8 inches of ice is being found, but there were some cracks to look out for. With the cold weather this week, the hope is that they will heal and some ATV or snowmobiles can start being utilized soon, but again, call ahead.

Leech Lake Fishing Report for Dec 5, 2019

Thursday, December 5th, 2019

Walker Bay capped over on Sunday night – after the snow hit. The area received around 10 inches of snow, but it was windy enough that it blew around and some people have started venturing on the 4 to 8 inches of ice that’s set up on parts of the main lake. The area’s small lakes have more ice and have seen quite a bit of angling activity.
