Perch fishing in NVA

Recommended Posts

I know this should be in the other species forum but since most of the N VA people hang out here and it is the off season for bass I thought I'd throw it out.  Mods feel free to move if necessary.

Up north yellow perch are active throughout the winter and many people ice fish for them.  They are real good eating too.  I was just wondering what the winter perch fishing was like around here.  I thought it would be fun try and catch some assuming they are more active than bass.  Any hints?

I don't know of anywhere to catch them in the area off the top of my head, but then again, I've never targeted them so who knows...

Paul,

The bass are still pretty active around here in deep water.  I have been catching good numbers and good size LMBs the last couple of weeks at Lake Mercer.  I am hoping to catch some LMBs at both Lake Brittle and Lake Mercer this weekend as well.  I would not know of any place to catch Perch since I only target bass.

There are some big perch in the river. Look for them wherever you find a gravel bottom. They will take small bass lures or crappie jigs (that's the way I usually catch them.) I'm sure a perch specialist from up north has some live bait tricks that would be really productive.
