Re: perry lake hog trough

Sorry I wont fish Perry till it gets to cold for skiers and lake lice. I would think look for the cluster of boats one use to be by Devils Gap.

Re: perry lake hog trough

It is located just south of the south boat ramp at the state park.  There have been a few boats there, nothing like it used to be where there were 40-50 boats all anchored to where you could almost walk from boat to boat.  I did fish it a couple weeks ago and got a limit.  There were 3 of us and we caught our 30 fish.  Had to work at it, but the average size was 2 lbs.  The big fish was 5.5 lbs.  Got on the lake at 7am and off at 11:30.  Hope this helps.

Its a little off the point to the north I think they did it so the south summer wind wont bother them as bad.

Re: perry lake hog trough

Sounds right to me.  I know when I put the boat in on the south ramp of the state park and if I am looking at the water from the ramp, I go to the right around the point and am out in front of the farthest south camping (primitive) area in the state park.  I hope this helps and there should be other boats out there.  We were in like 29 feet of water, but I am sure the water has gone down since I was out there last.

Re: perry lake hog trough

We were there today at Devils gap & we were the only ones there. We could see a few boats over by the state park maybe 6-7 boats. We kept 8 good eater channels & through back 12 or so smaller ones. We tired to get right on top of the hump on the channel drop off in about 18 to 20 feet of water. Didn't see any lake lice or skiers . Just put some more beans to soak for the next trip. Jim C.

Re: perry lake hog trough

Well it has been a while but made it back the Devil's gap a few time in the last month. We did OK on a couple of trips but not so good on others
did see alot of fish caught. Lots of boats on the weekend. Hope to go a few more times this summer. Jim C.
