River perch fishing


One of the many small perch caught near a river rocky 'drop off'. When quality is hard to come by, catching numbers is the way to go.

Perch are everywhere where there's water and food source. But, they may not necessarily be on the top of the food chain. The pike usually occupy that spot. In places where they are on top, you're bound to catch the big ones. Over at the river, catching perch isn't really difficult. One particular fun spot to catch them is a steep rocky 'drop off' by the river bank. In summer, it is usually full of weeds. If you happen to be fishing there at the right time, you'll be pulling out perch after perch, normally the small ones. Among the many I've caught at that particular spot is this fish. It's not big and probably nothing to shout about, but catching number can sometimes be a good thing. As for now, I just have to wait till summer arrives before I can go fish there.
