AUTHORS. Joey Root, Southeast Missouri State University; Dave Knuth, Missouri Department of Conservation; Sara Tripp, Missouri Department of Conservation; John Scheibe, Southeast Missouri State University ABSTRACT. The White Bass (Morone chrysops) is an important sport fish species in Missouri’s large reservoirs.  As a result of this, understanding White Bass population dynamics is critical for both developing and implementing appropriate management strategies.  In recent years anglers have voiced concerns about declining White Bass catches at Wappapello Lake.  Thus, we will be evaluating population dynamics of White Bass in a South Central Missouri reservoir.  To collect a representative sample of the White Bass population, we will be setting experimental gill nets in the fall of 2018 and 2019.  Sagittal otoliths will be removed from 200 White Bass each year.  The age estimates will be used to determine which variables have an influence on white bass recruitment, growth, and mortality, such as reservoir hydrology, spring weather patterns, and exploitation.
