Does anyone know how perch fishing is in Wilmette? Back when I was in high school, they were pretty abundant around the harbor and Gilson Beach. But since then, I know some areas there have become off-limits.

Last time I was there, I saw a sign saying hiking out onto the north rock jetty is no longer permitted.
Haven't been back since. :-(

Perch season opens June 15th Friday for Lake Michigan in IL. ! You can catch and release if you have an incedental catch of a perch, but cant target till June 15.
If I were you i would try perchin by the fishing pier at the water treatment plant i believe entrance is at Gilson Pk. Best time is weekdays as soon as park opens in am. Also right before dark they move in sometimes when their eating softshells !

Water treatmentment plant? Are you referring to Tower Rd in Winnetka by any chance?
And yeah, I plan on fishing on 6/16 so it's all good.

Any reason why you prefer Tower over Wilmette? Neither place seems to produce any reports.

I like the way i can pull right up to pier at Tower and park for one .Secondly this time of year you can pick up a stray coho or brown , especially with westerly winds pushing in colder water ! I also like to fish the weeds with a slip bobber ,especially right before dark, the perch sometime come in and poke around for crayfish !
Its too bad it doesn't open earlier ,as the sun pushes the perch back deeper after 7am ! There is a way to get in but, u could get a citation from the lady cop who watches from up above by the mansions !

I did not make it out. Woke up around 4 to see a major downpour so I just went back to bed. Didn't know you can't enter Tower Rd pier before 7AM. Good to know. I''l have to try it next weekend.
