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 Rating:
3.5
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):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 79 degree water temperature. Bass will start moving much slower and feeding less aggressively until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, it's time to get out fishing early and late in the day when the sun is not on the water. When you can get out for the entire day, it's a great time to fish some deeper water. Many large bass are taken this time of year since bass fishermen typically gets out deeper and fish slower with larger baits. Like any other time of year, the slower you fish with bigger baits on the deep drops and river channels, the better chance you have at a lunker. This is a great time to catch a trophy. Good luck out there today!

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Your lake crappie will be much more lethargic in the water temperature. They will be in deeper and cooler water. Crappie will be feeding; however they will not be feeding aggressively unless the other fishing factors are at prime levels. Find some moving water that is clear and you should find some more aggressive fishing.

Leesville Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- There aren\'t many Walleye in Leesville.
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be starting to get a little slower in this water temperature. With walleye being a cold water fish, they will start becoming fairly lethargic in this water. With the fish slowing down the fishing will be more difficult to find and coax into biting. However they will be feeding and the walleye bite should still be good. This time of year is a good time to fall back to live bait as standard practice for the best bet at numbers and size of fish.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
