There are a lot of lakes and reservoirs near McCall, and Cascade Reservoir is filled with delicious perch. They are a mild white-fleshed fish, averaging 12 inches. I like ice fishing, but Toby and his friend Kurt LOVE ice fishing. 10 below and windy? Press on. That's when fish won't suspect you.
Mostly it's beautiful out on the lake, and this has been a good year for creative perch recipes. This recipe from Kurt is my favorite! He adapted it from Hunter Angler Gardener Cook, one of the best wild food sites of all time. Serve this with crusty bread.
