Two small cats and an almost keeper perch in a short time this morning. Nice morning to get out and soak some red worms. Several snags and more wood is falling into the water from die off with the high water that must have drowned the roots. I'll pick some crawlers tonight and give it a shot again next week.
You can use this search tool from the DNR website. I would put the East River as the same as the Fox River Depere Dam downstream as that water flows into the East River.
I grew up on the east river in the 60's, it had some organic waste from Packerland Packing for a few years and the typical farm runoff but no chemical waste that I know of. The nasty stuff was all downstream, the East River was just mainly very muddy. We used to catch only bullheads and carp and didn't eat any. I would guess if they are eating fish out of the fox, the East is ok
Any carp spawning yet? Please pm me
I would eat the perch and pan fish
Hello, new to the east river, are the fish any good to eat or is it more of a catch and release area, thanks in advance for any info.
Damn didn’t read the season section in the regs. Well time to call the warden. Thanks for keeping me honest while I was being a bonehead. So I do apologize. Lesson learned. I really need to read the regs closer. Again thank you for letting me know.
You still can’t keep them lol. Just cause you aren’t going for them doesn’t mean you can keep out of season fish.
Just a fyi for ya,perch season is closed.
