Walleye's are perch (technically). There's plenty around.
Otherwise, I might suggest a trip to the Saginaw Bay!

lost perch

Saguaro lake has a small population. Can be caught in the fish habitat near the pier at Butcher Jones. Otherwise, the best in the state " was " Stoneman Lake. State record came from there a few times. They spawn near the end of March. Stoneman lake had been dry for about 18 months due to lack of snow.

Contact fish & game, I am not aware of any other populations

Bake where in washington are you from and what lakes did you fish for bass in?


We used to catch perch in lake washington all the time. harts lake had good size largemouth bass( I caught one by accident around 6lbs on a rapala jointed trout lure fishing for gay bass)

kapowsin(sp) lake was a good place for largemouths as well.

I live in puyallup

...

I grew up in puyallup all of my 18 years graduated high school at rogers, mostly fished at Kapowsin, and Rapjohn while also going to harts and ohop rearly. Mostly fished when I was 12-14, than baseball stared up and haven't really been fishing since. Baseball took control of my life and has brought be to arizona and now playing community college baseball looking to go to a university next year for my junior and senior year, I am just looking to get back in the sport in a couple years. I just asked if their were any perch because thats what color of crankbait I used to catch most of my bass along with spinnerbaits back up their in washington.
