Lake Perry

Tuesday, April 25, 2017 2:28 PM

Bream fishing is very good as the water warms, most anglers are having luck when fishing from boats around the edges of the lake.  Anglers have had success using crickets and worms from the pier and boat fishing near shore as well.  Average catch is around .5 lbs.  Anglers using buzzbaits topwater are getting decent bites on Bass. Try near the back of the lake and along the dam and spillway. Crappie fishermen typically do well in deeper water using minnows or green and black jigs near structures, especially under overhanging limbs and piers.  Crappie have been biting well around the campground pier as well as deeper structures in the lake.  Catches of a fish weighing 1.5 lbs are very frequent. Catfish tend to bite on livers and hotdogs along the bottom. Recent catches have ranged 3 - 10 lbs with a few even bigger being caught.

Water Temp: 77°F

Visibility: 21 in.
