Fishing report, July 24, 2014

■ LAKE MEAD — Anglers are reporting prime fishing time from 4:30 to 8:30 a.m. The heat of the desert sun pushes the stripers to deeper water and anglers off the water. Vegas Wash has produced good results for those netting shad. Striper boils have been found in coves across the lake, though the majority of the fish caught are about 1 pound or less. Shoreline anglers are having increased success as largemouth and smallmouth bass are hanging in the shallower water near shore. Those in the areas of Boulder Harbor and Echo Bay are reeling in fish using various lures, including crankbaits and plastics. For nighttime anglers, increased opportunity should come during the new moon on Saturday. Try fishing under a light or use a submersible light.
