Walleye

Leech Lake is a veritable "walleye factory" and the best fishing in Minnesota. Come join the crowd and enjoy everything Walker has to offer.

still a nice little town with Main Street a few blocks long. Short enough to walk up one side and down the other with a great variety of shops

Great fishing - limited on walleye. Good variety of guides available - ask at sporting goods store or check on line.

Make sure you try to do a pontoon ride (rented from Chase on the Lake) and enjoy a lazy ride around some of the lake area. Oh, fishing is also fantastic.

This lake is huge! Plenty of space for anything you would want to do on a lake. Cruising, Tubing, water skiing, and of course all the fishing. Its so beautiful. It can be cold seeing as its in the northern part of MN. If getting away from the city is what you want this is a great place to go.

The lake is beautiful, although a bit cold due t the unusual chilly weather in Minnesota. Pretty sailboats and a nice public beach, and the setting is lovely.
