Kurt,

A friend on mine on another board mentioned that back in 1950, '51, and '52, several lakes in NE Oklahoma were stocked with them. He mentioned Fairfax and Pawhuska Lakes. Can you corroborate this? Have you or any other ODWC biologists ever done a survey and come up with any?

Yellow perch were stocked in the mid 1900's experimentally, but never did amount to anything. I have never seen one in OK and never have seen any present in over 30 years of ODWC sampling data. I think the yellow perch is limited to Iowa/Illinois for the southern border of its range.
