FISHING REPORT


■ LAKE MEAD -- Stripers are continuing to boil. Anglers are catching stripers and catfish in the Vegas Wash with cut anchovies and live shad. The Boulder Beach area has been slow. The Overton Arm has been producing stripers and catfish with cut anchovies, and a few anglers are targeting largemouth and smallmouth bass between Echo Bay and Middle Point.

■ LAKE MOHAVE -- Striper fishing out of Cottonwood Cove has been slow. Some anglers report seeing fingerling stripers. Anglers are targeting largemouth and smallmouth bass in coves near the marina. Some anglers report success for bluegills up to 10 inches long. No stripers were reported at Willow Beach. Trout fishing has been fair to good with small lures, PowerBait and flies.

■ URBAN PONDS -- Hot daytime temperatures are taking their toll on valley fisheries. After the recent catfish plant, some of the released fish died because of heat-related stress. Anglers can still catch fish but might find the action to be slow until the weather begins cool.

■ PAHRANAGAT WILDLIFE REFUGE -- Anglers are finding success at the upper marsh for panfish and catfish. Mealworms or night crawlers below a bobber will catch fish.

■ KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA -- Bass fishing is good on all reservoirs. Anglers should target weeds and other structure using top-water or shallow-diving lures. Larger bass can be caught at Dacey Reservoir. Trout fishing remains slow during the day and fair in the early morning or evening hours.

■ EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR -- Rainbow trout are biting a variety of baits. Anglers will find better success in the morning and evening hours.

■ ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR -- Morning and evening hours will produce more trout, bass and crappie. Fly-fishermen should try damsel fly patterns in olive green just below the surface.
