Well, I've read the occasional thread on PK smallmouth. we have a house on PK and have met a few people who are locals and T anglers, and they say they catch a SMB about once every 2 to 3 years, so yes there must be a small population of SMB that eeks out a life.

Well, good news!! my wife and I were taking a walk, and we walked down by the boat ramp at the Harbor and ran into a group of TX DNR guys who clearly just came back from a stocking run and were pulling their boats out and getting ready to head home. I asked what they were stocking and expected the typical LMB or Striper answer, but they said they just stocked 45,000 fingerling smallmouths! yes, I got that right from the mouths of the guys who just put them in the lake.

this was in April ( I think) 2020 so by summer of 2022 we should have 8" to 10" catchable SMB. very exciting. hope the golden algae keeps its distance as the guys did confirm that they have been reluctant to stock SMB b/c they are very susceptible to it.

Hope they keep more stocking coming!!!

This was from the Wichita Falls District of the TPWD as posted on their facebook page on May 12th of this spring.

THEY’RE BACK!
17 years after the last stocking of Smallmouth Bass in Possum Kingdom, 43,000 Smallmouth Bass fingerlings now call PK home. Smallmouth Bass were last stocked in 2003, with stocking halted after that because of the threat of golden alga caused fish kills which had occurred in 2001 and again in 2003. History proved that the decision was correct as the reservoir has had many fish kills in the ensuing years up to 2013. Since then, there have only been a couple of very minor localized kills in the upper half of the reservoir. This year it was decided it was time to try to re-establish Smallmouth Bass into the reservoir.

I hope they flourish!
