Perry News Letter Good to Excellent 4 pages (lots of pics) Twice a year I will be publishing a newsletter with Perry and other waters in my District. The newest issue is available shortly and features Perry and Holton Banner Creek. If you would like to have the newsletter e-mailed to you click on Perry/Banner Creek  newsletter and fill in the blanks. You can read it while you're waiting for the fish to bite.
Bluegill Slow up to 0.2 lbs. Small hunk of worm or spinner around the piers.
Channel Catfish Fair up to 6 lbs Started the fish feeder on Friday, feeding sinking food at 7, 7:30am, noon, 7 and 7:30 pm.  Shad sides work great this time of year, corner of the dam.  Put out the fish feeders last week but it will be a couple of weeks before I add the fish food, water needs to warm up!
Largemouth Bass Slow up to 5 lbs Spinner baits worked slow around the brush piles.
White/ Black Crappie Fair up to .75 lbs. Tube jigs around the brush, fish will move shallow early in this lake since it is a little murky.

Ken Heaton is the new Creel Clerk for NEBO.  He will be asking you fishermen a few simple questions and recording the information to help us better manage the fishery for you!

Started the fish feeders, time to start fish and stop the wishing!
