Largemouth Bass Stocked at Lake George & Dump Lake

JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, & Parks (MDWFP) stocked approximately 46,000 largemouth bass fingerlings into Lake George and 16,000 into Dump Lake on May 16, 2012.  Both of these oxbow lakes were formed by the Yazoo River and are located in Yazoo County, near Satartia.  Recent population assessments have indicated low numbers of young bass; the additional fish were added to help improve the fishery.  "Stocking largemouth bass will provide anglers with more fishing opportunities and help boost the overall fishery at these lakes," according to MDWFP fisheries biologist Jerry Brown. The bass were reared at the North Mississippi Fish Hatchery.
