Further information

Main article: Black bass

The small bass is the same species as the large bass and the regular bass, the difference being the average size. The black bass as it is called can be found in clear water such as streams, rivers, and rocky areas as well as sandy bottoms of lakes and reservoirs. It usually prefers cooler water temperature and due to its pollution, it is a healthy type of fish and a good natural indicator and a healthy environment, though it may need adjustments to its environment.
