Large yellow perch are showing up in good numbers in the headwaters. For the best spots near you, refer to DNR’s Yellow Perch Locations Map: http://tinyurl.com/mk9e6tz.
The schools of perch moving up the rivers are driven by their own individual and unpredictable urges. While the males usually arrive on station early and remain until the spawn is over, the bigger females arrive, spawn in two or three days, then head back downstream. The runs should last into early April, but the majority of fish will have answered the call by mid-March.
