Description Ecology collected largemouth and smallmouth bass from six lakes in 2015 as part of a long-term monitoring study to assess mercury trends. A total of 57 individual bass were analyzed for total mercury. Results were compared to bass previously sampled from the waterbodies in 2010 and 2005. Samples were collected from Liberty Lake, Loon Lake, Potholes Reservoir, Silver Lake, Lake Spokane, and the Yakima River.
