It seems to me like there are quite a few perch getting caught this year. I have not even fished for them myself but I'm curious if you guys think their populations might be up?

no question...full reservoirs will do that...more room, more flooded vegetation creating invertabrae insect life...grababrewski's perch today were puking up scuds...and with more water increased spawning grounds that stay water covered allowing for huge hatching success for perch babies...

I fixed it for you...I couldnt believe it when he pulled the one incher out....and chased it with a 2 incher...surprised Pam married him with those credentials!...lol
It takes mad skills to catch a one inch perch. Speaking of mad skills that's why she married me!

Last spring I kept running into huge schools of small walleye and perch at Pueblo mixed together. I have a couple of mud areas that were loaded with 8-10 perch. I think the high water has really helped them out and there are bluegills now everywhere. I think Pueblo could be a really good perch fishery?

I wouldn't doubt it Neal. i imagine no one really targets them from the boat and it stays soft water mostly so there probably is some big ones in there
I have caught some bigger females slabbing spoons and Lindy rigging. When the water is up in the spring you can go up shallow area's and find open mud and they are there eating worms and juvenile crawfish.

how well do perch compete for forgage with all the other game in the lake?
