The yellow perch, unlike the so-called white perch, Morone americana, is a true perch, not a bass.

HOW TO IDENTIFY A YELLOW PERCH

Its most striking attribute is its golden yellow body with 6-8 dark fingers or bands which extend from the back towards the belly.Although the average size captured by anglers is 4-12 oz. (0.1-0.34 kg) it offers fast action and can be caught all year long. It will devour almost any natural bait and numerous types of artificials, including flies, and is an active feeder even in the winter season when it is caught while ice fishing.

Although it takes place in nearly every U.S. state today, due to equipping, it is sparsely dispersed in the South and through the majority of the West and Midwest.

In the east it ranges from Nova Scotia to the Santee River drainage, South Carolina and west through the Great Lakes to the edge of British Columbia and into Washington.
