Dumbbell is right near the Crest Trail and pretty shallow near the shore.
Like most high likes in the area, they don't respond to lot's of pressure but certain it has a few fish.
Check out Cramer Lake on the way in.
With a good green trails map, you'll find lots and lots of lakes in the area but you'd need more than a day to explore.
I've fished lakes here and you'll find blanks and others excellent fishing, particularly if you get off the beaten path.
Bring lots of bug repellent! Last week at Leech Lake the camping found tons of mosquitoes!

Steeli summed it up well - lots of lakes in the area and this time of year be prepared for lots of mosquitoes! Repellent is a must have. A tight tent and a head net might come in handy. If you are planning to do any off-trail exploring be sure to have a USGS White Pass quadrangle map or a similar Green Trails map. At Dumbbell Lake there is a nice campsite on the point. Fishing can be very good. USFS rangers might have up-to-date information on trail conditions, fishing, etc. that would be helpful. Have fun!
