Default Re: perch

Casey,I fished for perch for many years...streamers made with marabou or rabbit strips and some glittering materials looking like little baitfish should be ok.Use a sinking or intermediate line on a 5 or 6 wt rod.Perch is a fascinating fish...
Here's a very old pic of the kind of perch I caught....and was silly enough to keep fishbut I must admit I found it's better to eat than trout.

Default Re: perch

Like J-P says, small streamers should work well for you and you shouldn't need to go deeper than 5-6 ft. to hook fish, so the intermediate sink tip line would be right for me.

White Perch or Yellow Perch are pretty much the same in terms of what they'll strike on. I've also found that almost anything that a Bluegill will hit on will work for perch; and they're often times found together in the same lake/pond. The Bluegill will give you a much better fight on the line.

You can find books on Bluegill flies, if you're interested. Here's one:

Default Re: perch

I'd give some weighted standard nymph patterns a try also. Use a floating line so you can lift em and drop em, be ready to set the hook on the drop.

Adding to what JP mentioned.....Perch taste much better than them smelly ol' trout.
