    which one are you talking about?? If perch fishing, i assume you are talking about Riley res...
    good luck if u do go..
     

  3. I wish we had more places with perch around the Columbus area. Years ago the SouthEast Conservation club had perch stocked in it. My friend took me over there and we had a blast catching one after another. That was my only experience with perch, but I loved it!

    I've been asking for years about good perch fishing in and around central ohio with no luck. Gotta go to Erie to get the suckers it seems.

    best perching locally is in private stocked ponds. Last year i did catch two at griggs res.
     
  6. I got around 25 or more at Hoover, and about 15 at Alum last year. With biggest about eight inches. Alum i got them right off the beach area and Hoover I got them near twin bridges bounce'in minnies and small rapala's.

    People have been ice fishing Riley resevoir for years. I don't know about the new resevoir. I thought it had more saugeye, crappie and bluegill than perch. Not real sure though as I havne't fish the new one. I have fished Riley. A few perch and small saugeye can be caught through the ice. Nothing big though.
