The St. Lawrence River has a variety of panfish including yellow perch, rock bass, bullheads, pumpkinseeds, and black crappies. Both shore anglers and boaters pursue panfish. Yellow perch outdistance the other species in popularity, and anglers catch them year round in all of the river’s larger bays. The most popular perch bays are Chippewa, Terrace Park, Morley’s, Wheathouse, Coles Creek, Wilson Hill, and Massena Town Beach.

Black Lake is also a popular destination for panfish angling. The Black Lake Chamber of Commerce regularly hosts "America's Panfish Marathon," a summer-long contest with cash prizes.
