Perch Lake

Just flipped through my lake map book and came across perch lake. Never knew the lake existed. I live in River Falls. How do you get to it? How do you fish for rainbows on hard water?

Sounds like fun to me!

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Perch Lake is about 4-5 miles east of Houlton.

From River Falls, go through Hudson on Wis 35 north to Co. Rd V, follow V north to Co. Rd. E (E comes from Houlton) Turn right, or east on E about 1 1/2 miles to Perch Lake Road. This will be on the left side (north) of the road. (bottom of hill) Just a short way to the lake.

There is tons of info about fishing trout through the ice in the trout forum. I would start shallow (10' or less) and use small sunfish presentations. A weed edge would be good if you can find one.

Good luck.

fish in 50 ft of water 20 yds off the point (formed by the bay and the main lake), and use a small jig with 2 spinners, (available at burkhart co-op) similar to the flutter bug, and use crappie minnows. This is a sure fire way of landing trout. Need a vevilar to mark them. I have fished out there for 7 yrs and this works!

Do you have to walk all the way in to the lake? I drove by there a couple weeks ago and the gate was closed and nothing was plowed. I'd love to spend some time on the ice there, was even thinking about spendign the day there tomorrow.

No, you were trying to enter the park there, there is a boat launch on the south shore and a parking lot just up from that. You get there off County Road E unload your stuff and park in the parking lot.

Hudson huh, I am originally from Hudson

Thanks! I'm hoping to get out there sometime this week.

We moved to Hudson from Texas 6 years ago. I love this area for all the places to fish. It doesn't get much better!

I've got some time off at the end of the month. Would anyone want to show me around some of these WI lakes? I'll pay for bait and bring some food if that is an incentive.

Is your secret that you have caught some species out there that you think no one knows are in that lake? Because I am pretty sure there are no secrets out there. I grew up fishing this lake.

I've been fishing perch lake for 25 years. Any time after dark with a glow jig and a waxie you can't keep them off your hook. It's fun but if you want to catch big trout through the ice go to glen hills park, they average 2 to 3 pounds. As far as driveing on the lake I have in the past and still will drive out there but the landing is very steep.

Are the regs the same at Glen Hills as they are on Perch Lake? I tried Perch Lake this past week for a couple of hours. Didn't have as much time as I'd like. I'll have to head out there some evening. Thanks for the presentation hint. They weren't biting on minnows!

Hey Riverdreams,

I grew up in Hudson and used to fish Glen Hills Park about 20 years ago!! I am going to be in town next week from Colorado and am going to go there and try it. Have you been there yet this year? If so do you have any tips for me? We used to catch them on minnows on a tip-up as well as just your standard jig stick with a small panfish jig and a waxie. If I remember right we fished to the right of the boat launch. But I do remember a guy that fished in the little bay across from that and got some decent bluegills too.

Thanks for your help!

Tim

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
