Statewide Fishing Report
Well it was a good week on Leech Lake. The fish are definitely on the move and somedays they are snapping and others spread out and negative. With the winds we have been having of late the fish are congregating on the Main Lake Points and shoreline breaks. 4-8ft of water has been the best when fishing wind blown structures. Ottertail, Little and Big Hardwoods, Five Mile, Pine Point, Little Stoney, and any wind blown shoreline that has had the wind blowing into it for a couple days have been good.

CO Weekly Report
10-12-15- CO Ben Huener (Roseau) reports lots of successful duck hunters in the Roseau River and Thief Lake Wildlife Management Areas. Ringnecks and redheads are still the most populous bird on Thief Lake while hunters on the Roseau River are shooting more teal and mallards. A TIP complaint of two swans being shot at Roseau River WMA was investigated. Charges are pending for two hunters who killed the swans, claiming they thought the birds were snow geese. The swans, which turned out to be the larger species of trumpeter swans, weighed 22 and 24 pounds.
