Striped Bass stocking in reservoirs can create a unique angling opportunity to catch a trophy fish.

Working with MDC and Arkansas Game and Fish Department, our study will guide management agencies to develop stocking strategies to create a supplemental fishery while minimizing impacts to existing fisheries.
