They give replicas for 10 lb + fish that are weighed at the Hwy 6 Many La Bridge, could be Tackle Town USA.
The awards (replicas) are given out during the June Big Bass Splash. 2 of these fish were caught twice in the same year during this 4 month period.
Any one familar with T-Bend, its 75 miles long, and the Many bridge is about 37 miles from the dam. Six mile creek is where the first one was caught, she was 11+, 6 miles from the dam, thus six mile creek, she was taken in an weighed and tagged and release at Hwy 6 bridge. She was caught 3 weeks later 1 mile from six mile creek, which is 32 miles, one mile from home and weighed over 12 at that time.
Another one caught approx. 11miles up from dam, weighed and tagged, released and caught 1 month later in the same hole as originally caught or close. This shows that at least big fish have home waters and will travel to get there. 26 miles to get home.

Bass are certainly territory related. You'll notice the same fish year after year on the same bed till shes big enough to gain better territory and she disappears and another newbie moves into her old bed. I would think,as an un-educated opinion, that smallies would do the same but the loop in this question is that we are talking about a river, not a lake or pond.
