Abstract:IN 1963 WHEN THE PROGRAM described here was begun, studies of the fish population of Ridge Lake had been going on for 21 years (Bennett 1954a and 19546; Bennett & Durham 1951 : Durham & Bennett 1949 and 1951: Bennett, Adkins, & Childers 1969), These studies involved annual controlled public fishing during June, July, and August and draining censuses (usually in the spring) to gain estimates of the total population of fishes in the lake. Between these draining censuses we applied several types of primary or secondary population manipulation, or none at all, to explore the effects of these manipulations upon the fish populations and the yields of fishes.
