SMITHVILLE – A surplus of largemouth bass at the Private John Allen National Fish Hatchery in Tupelo is headed to a pool in Smithville.
Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service cooperate to stock native fish in many places across Mississippi.
The hatchery had a surplus of about 40,000 bass, and had no place to stock them, so the fish will be delivered to Lock B in Smithville along the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway.
