February and March Fishing Forecast - Leech Lake

With about a month to go in the season, Walleye fishing here on Leech lake has now settled into it's typical late winter doldrums for the most part. Mobile anglers can still catch their limit and then some by staying mobile and concentrating their efforts at dawn, dusk, and during  pre-frontal conditions. Small presentation details are critical now as well. Gold flutter spoons, hand picked shiners and glow teardrops are some good options to try out when the bite gets slow. More than any other time of year, punctilious presentations prevail for mid to late winter Walleyes.

Turning your attention to panfish now can really help fill in the lulls in the Walleye bite. Perch, Tullibee, Crappies and Bluegills often bite mid day and might even make you forget about old Walter. 

I'm seeing quality Perch now and it should only get better in the coming weeks.

                  Mid winter Crappies can be quite easy to find provided you are mobile.

Selective harvest can help ensure good fishing for future generations.

Cheers and hook-sets!
