Fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, black crappie, walleye, bluegill, hybrid sunfish, pumpkinseed sunfish, rock bass, yellow perch, bowfin, muskie and northern pike at Leech Lake in Minnesota.

Rich history, natural beauty and great fishing make Leech Lake a very desirable destination. Great for a fishing trip or extended family vacation, the area is packed with campgrounds, lodging, restaurants and everything you need to enhance your stay. But the real draw is the fishing. Although the lake is known as a top walleye fishing lake, anglers can also pursue bass, crappie, sunfish, perch, bowfin, muskie and pike year round. Leech Lake is a 111,000-acre lake in the north-central part of the state, at Walker. When bass, walleye and other species spend time shallow, they have about 200 miles of shoreline to inhabit. Big pike and muskie roam the lake and the chance of catching a monster is realistic on every cast. Once the ice is safe in winter, most all the fish species can be caught through the ice. Boat owners have multiple choices for boat launch ramps around the lake, and there are rental boats available during the season at marinas and recreation areas. At much of the public area and campgrounds there is easy access for fishing from the bank.
