Re: Roughly four out of 10 bass in Arkansas will die this year

DFG/DFW wildlife policies are set by elected/appointed politicians, not by the fisheries biologists.
All of the DFG/DFW biologists I've met have been fishermen, too. Their hands are tied by the politicians.

Slide the wire guard down until it catches the barb, and it'll only come off on a fish.

Google Lake Piru.
The lake is Quagga infested, so, once you fish it, you may be banned from other lakes until you have passed a quarantine period.
Having said that, if it has water it is a fun lake to fish.
