Sorry, I don't have a link. I know that one of the papers was published in the the Tennessee Academy of Science around 1976 or so.. You may try googling them. Also part of my Masters thesis at Tennessee Tech was about the food habits of the smallmouth buffalo in TVA and Corps of Engineers Reservoirs. If you check with the Tennessee Cooperative Fisheries Unit at Tennessee Tech University, they may have a copy of it. It should be from around 1976 or so. Also check out the journal "Transactions of the American fisheries Society" If you have google scholar there may be more information.
Good luck with your search.
