Leech Lake Water Temperatures

I fished Leech on Friday and noted the surface temps were in the low 60's. With the weather this weekend and early next week being in the 80's during the day and pretty warm at night, the lake will easily get to 70, perhaps more. It is shallow and heats and cools fast.

These are dangerous conditions for the fish. The stress of being caught and released at these water temps is a significant mortality factor. Please be prudent and help preserve this resource.
