Perch location during early season is dependent on where they’re going to spawn. A few primary patters are prevalent in most lakes and reservoirs. Perch run into marshes and sloughs often connected to the main lake via narrow tubes areas, or through a tube area into a shallower, darker lake connected to a clearer one. These areas can be as narrow as a culvert or a bridge area.
