FISHING REPORT


■ LAKE MEAD — Shad have been pushed out because of the wind, though some anglers have netted them. Cut anchovies and sardines are catching stripers in the Vegas Wash area, yet anglers are finding the best success with live shad. Anglers have been catching stripers and largemouth bass in the Overton Arm near Echo Bay, though the action has slowed. Anglers are using cut anchovies and hardware. Smallies and bucket mouths also have been hitting grubs in darker colors.

■ LAKE MOHAVE — Fishing has been slow. No reports of stripers, bass or catfish, though anglers have been marking them with fish finders. Anglers are blaming cooler temperatures, precipitation and wind.

■ URBAN PONDS — Fishing was good immediately after Friday’s catfish plant. Anglers caught catfish up to 4 pounds at Boulder City Pond while using shrimp. Nearly 300 participated in the Nevada Department of Wildlife’s Free Fishing Day event Saturday. Young anglers caught bluegill and a few whisker fish. Mealworms and corn were baits of choice. All ponds have a three-fish limit.

■ KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — Water temperatures are hovering in the low 60s. Trout fishing is beginning to taper. More bass anglers are showing up now that the spawn is under way. One angler caught an 8-pound bucket mouth at Cold Springs.

■ EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — More than 6,500 rainbow trout were planted before Free Fishing Day. Anglers have been doing well using PowerBait, lures and flies.

■ ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — Fishing continues to be good. Crappie continue to bite worms on brown and white jigs and flies. Good bass fishing can be found near the inlet around submerged brush and weeds.
