Perch are found in most all of New York’s lakes and rivers. The best time to fish for them is early spring and winter but you can still catch them in the summer/fall. The state record so far is 3lbs. 8 oz. Suggested tackle for yellow perch would be any ultra light outfit with 2, 4, or 6 lb test line. Anything from small jigs and spinners to flathead minnows will work. And with ice fishing season upon us our prices for buying yellow perch have changed…. We are paying $1.00 for 8″ and lower,  and $1.50 for 8″ and up! Have fun!
