The usual challenge with perch, much like walleye, is finding them. Once you do, though, you can catch them fairly easily. I recall one evening when I landed more than 40 perch using a small black leech pattern in 12 feet of water. Perch are more aggressive feeders than walleye, and they’ll respond well to a fly that moves a little more quickly—I’ve had success fishing small, weighted streamers in black or white. Just cast, let your fly sink, then strip it back in, pausing momentarily between strips. Jigging a weighted fly near the bottom will also produce.
