Looks like they planted Leech Lake last week
Fished it yesterday and it has definitely been planted. Lots of 14 to 16" rainbows prowling the middle of the lake taking pretty much whatever you present.
Was there at the end of July ish last year. The traveling sedges were on the move. Big! Fill your fly box. Add calibaetis.
Went there yesterday. Fished mid day. Plenty of folks on water. Plenty of squitoes in parking lot. Forest Serice checking for passes on vehicles. About noon fish began hitting surface like crazy. Left dry fly box at home, found a couple EHC that got no love. Switched to indicator set up and quickly landed 4 fish on 6 casts, then slower. Very large callibaetis coming off. Large and small caddis. Damsel adults on surface as well. Saw and heard osprey, but none fishing.
Wayne - NEVER forget the dry flies when heading to Leech......
Which pass or passes needed? Haven't been there in yrs. Will be head'n by there in July thought about stopping for a bit..
Northwest Forest Service Pass to park there, or camp.
Well Scott, I just put my dry fly box back into my lake bag. I can't figure out how it was removed. Must have been my wife, or kids, or dogs, or something, certainly wasn't me.
