Length at age 1,2 and 3 white bass Morone chrysops in 54 Texas, U.S.A., reservoirs was related significantly to longitude and log10 (TDS) (total dissolved solids). Length at age 1 also was related to morphoedaphic index (MEI), mean depth, and length of growing season. Quadratic models for latitude and growing season explained 19-24% (latitude) and 24-34% (growing season length) of the variation in length of white bass. Length of all age classes was unrelated to reservoir age, maximum depth, and surface area.
