I have never ice fished for Perch before. I know that Yuba has some bigger perch. Does Yuba usually freeze over sufficantly to ice fish safely (4-6 inches) most years. If so which part of the lake. I read a story that almost a hundred ice fisherman got stranded on the ice, but they were all safely rescued. I know fish lake has plenty of perch but I have heard they are rather tiny in size. Are their any nearby lakes within, or nearby the state of Utah that offer consistant 1/2-2 pound perch. Any information would be greatly apreciated! I hear they are very tasty and more than willing to bite.
