I have seen pics where they were remarkably the same. The pics I have see vary a lot depending on where they are caught as in brackish water etc. I sent you my yellow perch schedule.

Yes the perch are the same color

of course individual colors will vary a bit, but choosing a middle of the line color scheduale for North American Yellow Perch and its what is called in the ballpark. You can shade up or down to your needs.

are the easiest fish to paint. Should be able to paint from start to finish in about fifteen minutes with award winning results! There are many tricks to the methods and every perch can be somewhat different in color. Just like trout out of a stream, perch too, can have different color phases. Most perch have seven vertical stripes, but have mounted them with up to eleven stripes. Here in Michigan, the yellow perch is very common and many get mounted.
