FIshes found in the North Fork - Spotted Bass

Common in the lower reaches of the North Fork. It is a smaller bass and like came to the river from the Lake Norfork impoundment. I have caught a couple below ROLF. Also, called Kentucky Bass in some areas. Unfortunately, it will compete with our native river basses. Looks like a Largemouth Bass when upon closer inspection it has a more silvery coloring and teeth on it's tongue. (Courtesy Missouri Department of Conservation).
