You could scoop them out with a net?
or you can prevent it by putting some kind of mesh over the top, times of year when the leaves fall the most.

Home and garden supply stores should carry the mesh that Budzilla mentioned. Get a piece long enough to cover the pond and hold it in place with some large rocks on 4 sides. If you have a lot of small leaves you might want to try using two pieces of the mesh over top each other to reduce the hole size.

Pool supply store might have good sized nets if the garden store doesnt.
