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 NOW and features Perry and Leavenworth State Fishing Lake. If you would like the newsletter e-mailed to you click on Perry/Leavenworth SFL Newsletter and fill in the blanks. 
Black Crappie Fair up tp 1.0 lbs. Tube jigs and minnow or small spinner around brush, boat ramp cove and the dam.  Fish will be schooling as the water is cooling.  Look for them in the regular places, along the dam and the boat ramp cove brush.
Bluegill Fair-Good up to 0.5 lbs. Small jig or spinner tipped with a worm in the brush and along the weed edges.  
Channel Catfish Fair-Good up to 12.0 lbs. Pulled the fish feeders for the winter look for them next spring in the same places. Shad sides work great this time of year, wind swept banks.  Fish were pretty active all day around the feeder on the north side.  Looks like tons of small gizzard shad.
Largemouth Bass Fair up to 5.0 lbs. Spinners or plastics worked slow around the brush, standing timber and flooded vegetation. 
Walleye/ Sauger Fair-Good up to 3 lbs. Fish are feeding like crazy, jigs tipped with a minnow or crawler or trolling.  Saw some small shad being chased around by something.
General Comments

I see some of you have visited the new Facebook page.  I've posted a bunch of photos: walleye egg collection, stocking and electrofishing of lakes that are not in the fishing reports.  Just click this link hopefully you'll LIKE what you see!

The lake is still down several feet so be careful out there, I'll get some netting numbers up after I'm done netting.

I October netting pictures are up, we have white bass now! Click on Banner Creek above fishing report to see some of these fish . Click on the fish species and it will take you to the updated Fishing Forecast Data.
