This lake is a waste. To muskie fisherman a haven. Rest of fisherman dont waste your time the limit size 9\" for crappie has been taken off and determine by ODNR that they are stunted (recent via shock method study). The bass fishing could be better and the saugeye fishing is a joke. So the only thing that thrives in this lake are muskie which are way over populated and they eat what dont eat them. If you like bowfishing there are plenty of carp.ODNR needs to rethink there stocking program if they want other quality species of fish in this lake or they can continue there muskie fishery which is great for fisherman who like to fish for them. To all fisherman good luck and enjoy. Hope you catch the big one.

Leesville Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Leesville Lake has a 9.9 Hp max motor limit. The bass will hide in large trees
when the water is cold. The trees that are close to the surface warm up from the
sun during the day and the bass will \"snuggle UP \" to them. They use the trees as
a place to ambush smaller fish that try to warm up also. The surface water warms
up quickly during the day.
Leesville has weedbeds later grow to the surface during the summer. You can catch
all species of fish in and around the weed beds.

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Leesville Lake at 55 degree water temperature largemouth bass fishing is getting ready to ramp up. The male bass will start moving up from deep water toward spawning coves and the big ones are right behind them. This is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. The female bass will start feeding at this water temperature in preparation for spawn. The male bass may be up shallow especially on sunny afternoons. Fishing sunny spawning grounds that are receiving the warm spring time sun is a great way to get a few largemouth bass in the boat.

Leesville Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie should be getting ready to spawn. Stay out in deeper water and look for schools. Schooling shad will be harder to find with this water temperature so when you find it, stay on it. Crappie schools will be breaking up quite a bit getting ready for the spawn. Also try fishing shallower with small crank baits and spinners on the warm banks with direct sunlight. This is a great time to be on the water.

- There aren\'t many Walleye in Leesville.
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye are coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding very more aggressive making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Walleye will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into the lake flats and deep structure. It?s time to hit the water. This may be the best water temperature to be on the water. There shouldn?t be too many fishermen on the water this early and there are many species that are hitting their prime water temperatures to be biting very well. Have fun today!

Leesville Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.
