Upper Lake Mary Randy D. Blachley Jr. caught a 12-inch, 1.17-pound yellow perch out of Upper Lake Mary on Tuesday (June 25) and brought it to our Flagstaff-regional office. The fish was caught on a nightcrawler and is just short of the inland waters, hook-and-line state record (13 inches, 1.63 pounds caught by Art Ellico of Kingman out of Stoneman Lake on March 21, 1984).
