Fish Profile - White Bass

White Bass-  Silvery fish with several faint horizontal stripes on the sides.  Two dorsal fins are only slightly separated.  Travel in schools. 

Tips:  trolling in small plugs or spinners.  Jigs and minnows are effective.

Strictly a freshwater species, they are medium-sized (nine to 15 inches long) and sporty fish that are a favorite of local anglers.

White bass occur in the open water habitat of large lakes and reservoirs, as well as some large streams and rivers. They prefer clear water over firm bottom and usually travel in large schools. Sometimes confused with striped bass, white bass can be distinguished by their deeper body shape and single tooth patch on the tongue. In addition, white bass have only one of their dark stripes run the entire body length from head to tail.

Spawning takes place in tributary streams, nearshore areas and over shoals. Female white bass release their eggs near the water surface. The eggs sink and attach to rocks, sticks and bottom vegetation and hatch within two to four days.

White bass are fast growing predators. White bass are known for feeding at the surface in large schools. They primarily eat insects and fish.  White bass are locally popular sportfish. Their aggressive nature and schooling tendency make them one of the easiest fish to catch. The best fishing is in spring when schools of white bass move inshore. Casting or trolling streamer flies, jigs, spinners, and spoons or still fishing with minnows will produce good catches. Since white bass often feed near the surface, be sure to keep lures and bait off bottom.
