Did you catch that one near the launch, or somewhere else? I've caught my biggest ones there near the launch.

Had to post after seeing this thread pop up...turns out my fiance's old family farm about a mile down the road has a pretty good sized pond that is full of Bluegill and Bass. A lot of fun on the 4 wt.

Nice fish guys!

Here are some Sacramento perch from Lake Almanor.  Arguably the most elusive fish in the lake.  I've heard tales of 3+ pounders being caught here over the years.

Ha, I wish!  Those are various perch over the last three years.  Guys were posting panfish pics so thought I'd contribute with one of the more "unique" species.

Thanks Ryan.  I'd say in general, they have similar feeding habits to crappie.  Their diet turns more to fish as they grow bigger.  But unlike crappie, Sac perch only actively school during the spring spawning period.  After that, they're basically loners for the rest of the year.  This makes targeting them outside of the spring spawn period very difficult.  They can get real moody as to when they want to bite.  Over the last couple years I've started working on nailing down some patterns for them.  A marabou jig under a slip float is a killer technique in the spring when they're up shallow.  In summer, I found drifting small baits and lures drifted over weed beds in 10-20 feet of water is productive.  While targeting perch, you'll have to wade through a LOT of smallmouth bass.  That's not a bad thing, but often times it'll be like 3-4 bass for every 1 perch landed.

BTW, they cook up great!  White, firm fillets.  Some locals claim they're the best-eating fish in the lake.  I've cooked a few and yeah, they're pretty damn good.

Man, haven't caught a crappie since being a teenager in Michigan. Little minnows on the brush pile around sunset. Bam!

Beautiful fish.
