Lake: Banner Lakes SWA


Post By: PerchMan719      Posted: 2/1/2016 9:47:59 PM     Points: 275    
I noticed that Banner lakes is the only place with sacramento perch, is this true? ive never even heard of them until I looked at the species list, are these ponds able to be ice fished? I am a catch and release guy, I just want a picture of me holding a sacramento perch since ive never caught one. its now a fish on my bucket list! any help is greatly appreciated.

I think they are closed to fishing while waterfowl season is open. Send a email to lewdog about the perch. He is the lake skipper there.

I have fished at banner since 02 and have never seen one there. The record was in the 70s. I honestly dont think there are any left at banner. There is no fishing allowed till waterfowl season is over. There are sacramentos in other lakes in colorado. I stumbled upon them a few years back. Cant really tell you where but they can be nocked off the list with alot of research and fishing time.
