    Leech Lake Fishing Task Force

    Through countless hours of effort by the Leech Lake Fishing Task Force, in conjunction with the Leech Lake Band and the Minnesota DNR, they are realizing their goal of bringing back a strong and sustainable walleye fishery on the lake. It began in 2005 with a cormorant control plan and an aggressive stocking program. By 2010, over 100 million walleye fry had been introduced into Leech Lake. The result of this effort has been a return to quality walleye fishing that is as good as it has ever been, with Leech Lake once again being one of the hottest walleye lakes in Minnesota. The Leech Lake Walleye Tournament will showcase this walleye fishery recovery.
