Abstract

Electro-fishing gear was used to make shoreline population estimates of largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoldes) in Lake Elmdale, Washington County, Arkansas, during September 1979. The population density was estimated to be 1541 bass/Km² with a standing crop of 30.4 kg/ha. The length-weight relationship was calculated as W = 0.00001 504L^2.97, and the total length-scale radius relationship as L = 41.75 + 1.23 St. The average condition coefficient(K) was 1.31. In comparison with four other Arkansas lakes the population density of largemouth bass was highest in Lake Elmdale while the growth rate was lowest.
