Default Lake Mead

OVERTON ARM OF LAKE MEADE
Most of the anglers have been using anchovies to catch stripers and catfish. Spinner baits are taking the bass and, interestingly, a few catfish.

Boaters who have been fishing in the Boulder Basin have found stripers recently from the 33 Hole to Black Island. Most of the fish weigh around a pound.

Default ARIZONA AND NEVADA / HAVASU & MEADE

Mead and Havasu have good striper action. This is also a great time to start harvesting crayfish, aka crawfish or mud bugs. These voracious crustaceans are not native to Arizona, but they taste great. A small piece of meat, such as bacon fat, on a hook, or just tied on a string, will work fine. Kids love catching them.

Default LAKE MEAD NEVADA

Boaters are still having fair success for striped bass in Lake Mead's Boulder Basin and Overton Arm while shore anglers have had no luck during the past week, according to the Nevada Department of Wildlife.

Boaters are still finding stripers from Hemenway Point to Boulder Beach and at Boxcar Cove and the 33 Hole. Casting Sassy Shad lures and drifting with anchovies are taking the fish.

Default Lake Mead Marina

Boaters on Lake Mead have been marginally successful fishing for striped bass in the Boulder Basin by fishing deep with anchovies, while shore anglers have had only limited success.

Several boaters reported catching stripers toward the south end of Special Events Beach by fishing at depth with anchovies. Stripers weighing as much as 6 pounds have been taken with anchovies near Lake Mead Marina.

Boaters who were fishing Monday near the 33 Hole said they had no trouble catching stripers that were less than a pound with Sassy Shad and Shad Rap lures. There were large numbers of stripers around Pumphouse Cove, but most of them were small.

LAKE MEAD - Boaters continued to experience fairly good success for striped bass while shore anglers were still having difficulty landing fish.

Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) creel census clerks said that boaters fishing the Overton Beach area were successful landing striped bass that ranged from 16 to 18 inches. The fish were taken near Stewarts Point with anchovies and plastic worms.

Anglers fishing near St. Thomas reported good success for largemouth bass that ranged from two to three pounds. The fish were taken with top-water lures.

Boaters fishing close to the islands in Echo Bay reported good success for largemouth bass that averaged 2 1/2 pounds. Anglers said that they also caught and released smallmouth bass that ranged from 12 to 14 inches.

Stripers that averaged 16 inches and hand-size blue gill were also taken. The fish were taken with anchovies and black plastic worms.

NDOW continued to get reports of boating activity concentrated about 200 yards south of Special Events Beach, which could indicate a school of stripers in the area. Small stripers were also seen feeding on numerous schools of threadfin shad at Horsepower Cove.

LAKE MEAD: There has been virtually no change in the fishing for the past two months as boaters who are fishing for striped bass in the Boulder Basin are doing fairly well while the fishing has been below par from shore and in the Overton Arm.
The Las Vegas Wash area continues to hold stripers and boaters are catching them by trolling, drifting with anchovies, jigging and casting top water lures. Anglers have been telling the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) that it appears the fish are beginning to move as they are now being caught at Sand Island and a few have appeared below Lake Mead Hatchery.

Stripers have not come close to shore this fall and this has resulted in poor fishing for anglers who are fishing from the shoreline. An occasional catfish is about the only luck anglers have had recently.

Largemouth bass fishing has been fairly good for boaters who are catching released tournament fish along the Callville Wall across the lake from Callville Bay Marina.

Default Colorado River Lake Mead

LAKE MEAD: Anglers fishing big swimbaits have been targeting areas where trout are stocked every Friday for fair to good action. Stripers have been averaging from 5-0 to 13-8 and are hitting Storm swimbaits, Huddleston Deluxe swimbaits, or A.C. Plugs. The bait bite for stripers has been fair at best, with some action coming on cut anchovies drifted in 40 to 70 feet of water. Trout will be planted on Fridays for the rest of the season. Largemouth bass action is starting to improve in the Overton Arm for anglers fishing plastics. For more information, call Blue Lake Tackle at (702) 452-8299.

LAKE MEAD

Winter fishing has been surprisingly good at the lake, even though this is typically the slowest period of the year for striped bass and other warm water game fish. Boaters putting in the effort are catching stripers, including some fairly large fish.

Anglers competing in a striped bass fishing tournament held over the weekend had fair success and managed to reel in a nine-pound striper along with two that weighed seven pounds.

Most of the action for stripers is from Sand Island to the back of Las Vegas Wash. A few stripers have been caught recently with anchovies near the tires at Lake Mead Marina.

Anglers fishing in the Overton Arm over the weekend told creel census clerks that they had some luck for stripers in back of Fish Island and at St. Thomas.

A shore angler had good luck for 18- to 19-inch stripers over the weekend while fishing with anchovies to the right of the houseboat dock at Echo Bay Marina. Small stripers are being caught at the tires at Overton Beach Marina.

Largemouth bass fishing has been fair for boaters fishing for bass released from the fishing tournaments.

Rainbow trout are being caught after the weekly plants.

The final trout plants of the winter season will be held today at Hemenway, Horsepower, North Saddle and Pumphouse coves.

COLORADO RIVER

LAKE MEAD: Striper fishing is fair to good for anglers fishing cut anchovies in 20 to 40 feet of water. Fishing was particularly good over the weekend in the Overton Arm, where boaters were catching 2-0 class stripers at St. Thomas, Fish Island, Fire Cove and Ann Margaret Cove. Largemouth bass fair with the best action at Fish Island and the Muddy River. For more information, call Blue Lake Tackle at (702) 452-8299.

LAKE MEAD: Anglers are finally experiencing some top water action for striped bass, otherwise there has been little change in the fishing during the past week.

Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) creel census clerks report that boaters are still having good luck for striped bass in the Las Vegas Wash end of the lake. Most of the stripers are around 2 pounds.

Over the weekend, anglers who competed in a Nevada Striper Club fishing tournament had fair success for stripers. However, the largest fish brought to the scales weighed just 4 1/2 pounds.

A variety of methods are being used to catch the fish. Some anglers are using jigs while others are having luck by fishing with anchovies. Boaters have reported seeing boils taking place near Boulder Canyon.

Two boaters who were fishing Monday in the Overton Arm caught and released many stripers that were 10 to 12 inches in length at the Meadows. Jigs baited with squid proved to be the best method for catching the small stripers. They reported to NDOW that there were numerous boils in that part of the lake.

LAKE MEAD: The long-anticipated start to shoreline fishing has still not materialized as boaters are having all of the luck while the few anglers who are now seen fishing from shore are having very little success.
Boaters are having fairly good success for striped bass in the Las Vegas Wash Arm, with most of the fish weighing around two pounds. Jigging, drifting with anchovies and trolling are all catching stripers.
The top water bite has never gotten going in the Boulder Basin, and very few stripers are being caught from boils.
One pair of anglers reported that they gave up fishing from shore and now fish from a boat by the tires at Lake Mead Marina where they are catching plump stripers that weigh around a pound. They are catching the fish with cut anchovies. Catfish that weighed approximately 12 and 14 pounds have been caught deep near the tires during the past two weeks.
One angler reported to the Nevada Department of Wildlife that he continues to find small stripers around the Meadows in the Overton Arm. Most of the fish weigh under a pound, and he is catching them with anchovies that are placed on a jig head. Larger stripers are being found around Fish Island, also in the Overton Arm.

FISHING REPORT

* LAKE MEAD -- Bass anglers are catching smallies and largemouth bass all over the lake. Early mornings still are best. Pro angler Justin Kerr used a combination of oxblood RoboWorms and Super Spooks to win the 2008 WON Bass U.S. Open tournament on the lake last week. His three-day total was just more than 27 pounds.
Striped bass are hitting hardware in the Overton Arm with most action taking place on the Gold Butte side. Catfish are taking cut bait. The Las Vegas Bay arm still is producing stripers, but the fish generally are small. They are taking top-water lures and lures jigged below the surface.

* LAKE MOHAVE -- Fishing remains good to very good for shore and boat anglers. Striped bass in the 1- to 5-pound class are taking whole anchovies trolled in 20 to 80 feet of water. Cut bait is catching smaller stripers and catfish.
Largemouth are biting on top-water and shallow-diving lures. The fishing pier at Willow Beach is the place to be for rainbow trout. The fish are taking PowerBait in the salmon egg, orange, yellow or gold colorations.

* LAS VEGAS URBAN PONDS -- Cooler evening temperatures should translate into better fishing at the local ponds. Trout stocking could begin in early November if temperatures are cool enough.
In the meantime, catfish, bluegill and bass will provide a challenge. Floyd Lamb probably is the most productive fishery right now. Catfish will be stocked again the week of Sept. 15.

* LAUGHLIN -- Anglers are catching stripers on the Colorado River below Davis Dam. They mostly are small and taking cut anchovies. Largemouth bass have been active along the river as well. On Lake Mohave, largemouth and smallmouth bass are keeping fishermen busy.

* EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR -- Focus on the aeration bubbles, where the oxygen concentration is highest. With temperatures beginning to cool, fishing should pick up along the shoreline.
In the meantime, Rooster Tails, Panther Martins and flies fished in deeper water should net bites. From the shore, try PowerBait and worms. A one-fly tournament will be held here on Sept. 20. Call (775) 962-5103 for information.

* ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR -- Spinners and flies are catching fish even though the water is low. Most action is from trout and bass, though the occasional crappie still shows up. Focus on the deep water near structure or along the dam.

* KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA -- Weed growth is beginning to hamper shore and boat fishermen. Bass anglers are picking up fish by throwing plastics to open pockets in the weeds. Things are tougher for those on the shoreline, though fishermen still are catching a few trout.
