I just read this:

Does anyone know anything about this or remember it? It actually seems bizarre that TPWD would have put this cool water species not native to anywhere closer than Missouri, and that requires rocky substrate, in White Rock Lake. What would they expect except for the fry to die out as the local predator species ate them or they just succumbed to conditions?

I suspect that the reference to the department's surveys not finding any yellow bass in White Rock Lake recently actually should be Walleye. I expect yellow bass may still be abundant there. For those who don't know, yellow bass is a close relative of white (sand) bass, but does not grow to nearly as large. They are native to the Trinity River basin and when I frequented White Rock Lake, and White Rock Creek, they were abundant in both, as they were in most other streams and reservoirs in and about the eastern environs of Dallas County.
