Fishing report, July 31, 2014

■ LAKE MEAD — Those anglers who have made their outings an overnight affair also have increased their odds of bringing in a quality-size striper, though their catch numbers aren’t any larger than those who fish during the daylight hours. With warmer water temperatures sending the larger fish deeper during the day, the striper boils are made up primarily of fish ranging from 1 to 2 pounds.

Catfish can be found in the backs of coves, with prime fishing taking place at night.
