I'm a new guy, too. From NW AZ. I have fished below Hoover Dam for stripers quite a bit, but from around Willow Beach and down. Slow trolling shad Rattle Traps work, as do chunks of anchovies on the bottom. There are 30+ pounders cruising in those waters, so you can fish for those. Different equipment and different methods.
Regardless, it's beautiful in that area of the Colorado. Keep your eyes open for big horns & burro's.
