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):
With Leesville Lake at 43 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

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.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
