Default Fy Fishing Perch

A gentleman at cabelas told me about a place close to calgary, were I could catch some perch, he used a spin rod. I have not heard much about people catching them on the fly rod, which is my favourite mode of fishing.
I got a few around Hinton,not bad eating.

Small leeches under a bobber.
A balanced #14 works great. Use olive, black.

i love too fly fish them

took my sister in-law n daughter with grand child

they caught over 100 with in 2 hrs

i like using blood worms under indicator

the thing to do is twitch it slowly then bring in a bit

be careful though as ripping back to cast again can be dangerous .. roflmao

had boats watch the melee that must of been jealous

fun fun fun

Iíve yet to find any decent perch fishing around Calgary. Would be nice to find a lake nearby where I could take my two young sons to fish perch on the fly.

Default perch

PCB Ok got my attention, two young boys, ok, stratmore, has fishout pond for children, Two docks with benches, big rainbows going by at point blank range, good place to start---For perch send me private message for location. A gentleman on this thread was kind enough to forward info on a way to catch the little buggers.

They readily take dry flies at Lake Sundance.

Chironomid below an indicator also slays as do small leeeches.

They bite and release very quick. Good hook setting practice.
