Fishing Report


■ LAKE MEAD -- Boils are popping up around the reservoir. In the Vegas Wash area, anglers are spotting boils near 33 Hole and in the Overton Arm near Stewarts Point and the Glory Hole. Expect top-water action for stripers to pick up throughout the summer. Still-water fishing with cut anchovies and squid will pick up stripers and catfish.

■ LAKE MOHAVE -- Fishing has tapered off and is considered fair to poor. Though anglers are marking stripers with their fish finders, fish refuse to cooperate. But catfish have been biting cut and prepared baits while anglers are still-fishing in coves. Look for bluegill, as well. At Willow Beach, striper fishing has slowed after the full moon. Trout fishing has been fair to good for rainbow trout biting PowerBait, worms, salmon eggs and Super Dupers.

■ URBAN PONDS -- Sunfish have been hitting at Floyd Lamb Park, as anglers have been catching pan-size fish using mealworms. At Floyd Lamb and several other urban ponds, catfish are biting cut and prepared baits such as shrimp, hot dogs and stink-baits.

■ KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA -- Bass fishing has been fair to good. Anglers are targeting fish near the weed beds around the reservoirs. The best time to fish is in the morning.

■ EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR -- Anglers are catching rainbows off the dock with PowerBait and lures. Expect fishing success to slow with warmer temperatures.

■ ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR -- Anglers still are catching bass, crappie and trout. Expect a decrease in trout with hot temperatures and lower water levels.
