Leech Lake - Minnesota's Third Largest Lake
Leech Lake is the third largest lake entirely within the boundaries of Minnesota with approximately 112,000 surface acres. The lake has an irregular shape with a lot of underwater structure and many bays. The deepest area of the lake is located in Walker Bay where depths reach around 150 feet deep but most of the lake is less than 35 feet deep.
The fish community is dominated by species in the perch and pike families. Walleye, northern pike, and muskellunge are the primary predator species, while yellow perch and cisco are principal forage species. Leech Lake is well known among anglers for its excellent walleye, northern pike, and muskellunge fishing but the lake also boasts large populations of largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, black crappie and panfish.
