It's up to all of us to make sure these are not spread to other area lakes, Clean-Drain-Dry everything that is taken out of Perry.

If you would like the letter e-mailed to you click Perry/Leavenworth SFL Newsletter and fill in the blanks. Channel Catfish Fair-Good up to 10.0 lbs I've removed the fish feeders for the winter, look for them next spring. Shad sides work great this time of year, fished shallow on wind swept banks. Saw good numbers of shad when we sampled, little bigger than I'd like but there are tons of them! Sauger Fair up to 2.0 lbs. Jigs and twisters off of the those gravel rocky points, fish are just feeding now. Largemouth Bass Fair up to 4.5 lbs. Crank and spinner baits worked slow around the structure, rip-rap. White Bass Fair-Good up to 1.5 lbs. Twister or roadrunners will produce fish off of those rocky points or the humps or islands. Have seen some busting shad on the surface. White Crappie Fair up to 1.0 lbs. Fish will be schooling as the water is cooling, tube jigs or minnows, 10-12' of water over brush and along the creek channels. Blue Catfish Slow up to 2 lbs. Electrofished a couple weeks ago and saw a few small ones. Tried a couple new spots on Wednesday and sampled one that was 24" long, I know we are getting some bigger fish out there. Comments I see some of you have visited the new Facebook page. I've been posting on it: walleye egg collection, stocking and electrofishing photos from other lakes that are not on the fishing reports click this link https://www.facebook.com/NEKansasFisheries hopefully you'll LIKE what you see! We'll be sampling in October so I'll have some new pictures for you to look at! Few gizzard shad pictures from our sampling a month or so ago.

Zebra mussels were confirmed on 10-9-07, so make sure you clean, drain and dry your boat after leaving Perry.
