Perry Spillway

Recommended Posts

Anybody have experience fishing the spillway at Perry lake? I know the past two state record hybrids have been pulled out of there. I just moved and found out I am about an hour away so I thought I would give it a shot.

Actually, the location on my profile is where I moved from. I am now in Overland Park so Perry is about 30 or 45 minutes closer. I went over there last week with no luck. Your right, it is definitely a lot smaller than Truman but it seems like a decent place to fish.

It can be. Fish it in high water and the larger fish come to the dam to feed on the smorgasbord of fish coming through the dam's tube. It is much the same at Clinton which is about twenty minutes from my front door.

There has been more than one species of state record fish caught from the spillway at Perry. The most important part like any spillway is that there needs to be water moving. If the water isn't flowing it's almost impossible sometimes. It can be really good fishing for several different species though.
