General Fishing Information

Upper and Lower Lelands Ponds are connected by a channel that runs through a culvert under the highway. This culvert is too small for boat passage, but it does allow fish movement. Upper Lelands offers a cold water fishery for brown trout along with warm water gamefish such as largemouth bass and tiger musky. Lower Lelands is shallower and weedier and offers a better opportunity for largemouth bass and tiger musky. Bluegills, pumpkinseeds, black crappie, brown bullhead and yellow perch can also be found in both ponds.

Fisheries Management

Upper Lelands Pond is stocked annually with approximately 1,360 year-old brown trout. Lower Lelands Pond receives approximately 155 tiger musky annually.

Special fishing regulations exist for trout in Lelands Ponds. Please consult the Special Regulations by County section of your fishing regulations guide.
