Bayou Systems Survey
This questionnaire is part of an official research study being conducted by Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPWD) concerning the lower Sabine and Neches rivers, and the Taylor/Big Hill/Hillebrandt bayou systems. Recently, black bass tournaments have increased on these waters, prompting complaints from tournament anglers regarding a perceived low abundance of largemouth bass longer than the current 14-inch minimum length limit. During the summer of 2015, TPWD estimated size structure, age structure, and mortality rates of largemouth bass from these systems and determined that less restrictive length limits could be biologically appropriate. Information gained from this questionnaire will help TPWD make an informed decision regarding a potential harvest regulation change that would be consistent with the needs and desires of all anglers. Your cooperation is important for the successful completion of this research study.
