FISHING REPORT


LAKE MEAD -- Anglers are finding fair fishing in the morning, then are leaving before it gets too hot and windy. Top-water action continues to yield stripers. Anglers are catching fish by jigging or using cut anchovies. Fishing for catfish is good during lowlight conditions using anchovies in the Vegas Wash area. Fishing has been good for largemouth, smallmouth and striped bass near Stewart's Point.

LAKE MOHAVE -- Striper fishing at Cottonwood Cove has been fair, with fewer anglers out due to the heat. Successful anglers are finding stripers at a depth of 30 feet. Anchovies are the bait of choice while fishing after dark until early morning. Catfish have been biting anchovies and PowerBait fished on the bottom. Willow Beach anglers have been catching trout around the fishing pier using white PowerBait and corn-scented salmon eggs. A few large stripers up to 20 pounds have been caught downriver on AC plugs and SPROs.

LAS VEGAS URBAN PONDS -- Fishing for catfish has been slow due to the heat. Expect better fishing after the catfish plant scheduled for Sept. 10. Bass and bluegill fishing continue to be good with worms.

KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA -- Bass fishing remains consistent with larger fish coming out of Dacey and the recently opened areas of the reservoirs. Trout fishing has been good on Cold Springs and Haymeadow for anglers casting flies or lures, but only fair for bait anglers due to weeds.

EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR -- Fishing continues to be good for rainbows and tiger trout with PowerBait, lures and flies. Worms will pull out an occasional brown trout.

ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR -- Bass fishing is good in the evening, and crappie are hitting jigs and flies during the rest of the day. Trout fishing is slow.
