June 24, 2001


PERRY LAKE (June 22) -- Water 75 degrees and 17 feet above normal pool. Another 1.5 feet expected by this weekend. New Slough Creek ramp only one usuable by weekend. Watch out for the logs. Channel Catfish fair. Fish are done spawning, feeding like crazy with all the new water. Fish those incoming creeks. The feeders will be operational if and when the water goes down. Sauger fair on crankbaits or jigs and minnows on the bottom. White bass fair on windy points with twisters or crank baits. White crappie fair. Fish are a little skinny. Fish will be in that summer pattern shortly, harder to catch.

LEAVENWORTH STATE LAKE (June 20) -- Bluegill fair on crickets and nightcrawlers around feeders, brushpiles and rocky areas. Channel catfish good on Bee-Jay, chicken livers and nightcrawlers around feeders and spillway area. Nightcrawlers have produced good numbers of fish in upper end of lake after heavy rains. Largemouth bass fair. Some fish are being taken using nightcrawlers, minnows, 4- and 6-inch plastic worms with chartreuse tails, spinnerbaits, and crankbaits.

LONESTAR LAKE (June 20) -- Channel catfish good on prepared baits and chicken livers off points and in coves. Nightcrawlers in feeder streams during periods of inflow.
