Fish have 10 to 12 dark stripes along their sides, which are less distinct in older fish. They usually have 16 thoracic rays and 26–27 scales around the caudal process.


In North America, Guadalupe bass are found only on the Edwards Plateau in the Brazos, Colorado, Guadalupe, San Antonio, and upper Nueces Rivers (where imported) in south Texas.


The fish are found in gravelly rivers, stream channels and flowing pools, as well as in small and medium-sized rivers.


Guadalupe bass can grow to almost 16 inches and usually weigh less than a pound. The world record for all-tackle fishing is held by a Texas fish weighing 3 pounds, 11 ounces, caught in 1983.
