Lake Perry

Monday, March 20, 2017 11:54 AM

Bass fishing is picking up as they are beginning to bed.  Anglers using buzzbaits topwater around bedding sites are getting decent bites. Some lucky anglers are starting to see fish close to 6 lb. Try near the back of the lake and along the dam and spillway. Look for bream using crickets around deeper structure. Average size caught is around 0.5 lb. The front of the spillway and along piers are always good places to try. 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 great on livers and hotdogs along the bottom. Most report catches from piers and shoreline near the office in the evenings. Recent catches have ranged 3 - 10 lbs with a few even bigger being caught.

Water Temp: 67°F

Visibility: 38 in.
