Abstract

The new artificial lakes of Iowa are particularly adapted for the large-mouthed bass (Aplites salmoides-Rafinesque), because the lakes are fed intermittently with run-off producing turbid conditions periodically, because large areas in the upper reaches of the lakes have suitable spawning areas, because crappie and bluegill do well in the same type environment, in turn becoming bass prey, because the warm waters of these areas have a proper amount of nitrogenous material necessary to stimulate growth of zoo-planton forms listed on the young bass bill-of-fare, and because the manmade lakes have sufficient depth to carry fish through severe winter months. There are, of course, other reasons conducive to typical large-mouthed black bass environment.
