Leech Lake Ice Fishing and Conditions Report

Merry Christmas to all our fishing friends! What an amazing year we had at Leisure Outdoor Adventures and we have you to thank. We have enjoyed sharing our boats, making new friends, telling a few bad jokes, expecting all the unexpected things that happen and taking photos of lots of big fish! Leech Lake is such an amazing fishery and it didn't let us down this year! Thank you for choosing Leisure Outdoor Adventures for you guided fishing trip and we hope to see you in 2012!

We have been fishing on ice now for the last few weeks and as usual the early ice bite has been very good but we haven't seen the normal cold temps our Minnesota weather usually brings us. Without those cold nights we haven't made as much ice as we would expect in a normal December. One thing we have going for us is we don't have really any snow allowing that ice to build on moderately cold nights. We have still been walking to our spots just to be extra safe but we have seen many people travel out with ATV's. Keep in mind the ice is safe in most spots for ATV travel but we have found a few spots that it wouldn't so be very careful.

Leech Lake Ice Report

Walker Bay: Average of 7 to 8 inches
Pine Point to Goose Island: Average of 8 to 10 inches (be careful of the big cracks)
Portage Bay: Average of 8 to 10 inches (have found 6 inches in spots)

The fishing and weather has been ideal for a great early ice bite but remember safety is number one!

If you are interested in a guided ice fishing trip we have many packages to fit your needs. You can find them at
