Well I think our Walker MN fishing Guides are finally out of the May fly hatch. Over the last 3-4 weeks we have been seeing may flies in the water column as well as on the surface. They seem to have stopped hatching finally. But the big question is, what does that mean for walleye fishing on Leech Lake?
With less food in the water for these walleyes to eat the bite has picked up. Young of the year perch are gown up enough to chase for these big walleyes so look for them to feed on a perch pattern. Our guides have been focusing on a few parts of the lake with the same characteristics to find active walleyes.
Look for shallow (under 14 feet) sand and weed transitions. The small perch are in there and the walleyes are in return chasing them. Most of our luck has come on spinner rigs with a perch or gold pattern tipped with a crawler. Depending on the day our targeted speeds have been anywhere from 1.2 – 1.8 mph.
We have a few openings available for the month but are starting to fill up. Feel free to call, text or email us https://leechlakeguideservice.com/contact-us/
