Nothing like making things confusing but the top picture is a White Bass . The picture of the Hybrid Striper or White Rock or Wiper or the many other names it is called is on the previous page at the bottom. The easiest way to distinguish the wiper from Striped Bass or White Bass is to look at it's stripes . The stripes on the White Rock are broken towards the top of the row . Look at Swirls Striper no break in the lines then look at the White Bass above no broken lines . Want to really get confused ? Try fishing the river that has all three in WV , the bigger ones are easy to ID but when they are under 10 inches you really have to look. What always amazes me is how a fish created from the cross of two species with straight stripes ends up with broken stripes ! Thank you this was my attempt to really muddy things up ! Haha!

First ever wiper on the fly. Pink over White 3" Clouser.

Note the broken lines at the front tip of the fish. Definitely a Wiper!
