Lake Leelanau is located in the Leelanau Peninsula in Northern Michigan.  It’s still located in the lower peninsula, but you still have to head up north to get to this part of Michigan. The entire lake, which includes two bodies of water is usually referred to as North Lake Leelanau and South Lake Leelanau.  The lake covers about 8,608 acres.  It’s a good fishing lake for a variety of different fish.  Northern pike, smallmouth bass and walleye get the most attention on this lake, but you can also find largemouth bass, many different panfish and trout too.
