■ LAKE MEAD — Due to federal budget issues, the Lake Mead National Recreation Area is closed. However, that doesn’t change the fact that this time of year is a prime time to be on the lake. With the water temperature dropping, larger largemouth and smallmouth bass should be coming closer to the surface. This makes the rocky points and the backs of coves productive up to about 30 feet. Should the recreation area reopen soon, try casting plastic grubs and tubes or using a drop shot rig with worms. This also is the time when large striped bass that have been holding in deeper water should come up in the water column. Try chumming to increase activity. With the arrival of a new moon on Saturday, fishing with a submersible light will help bring in stripers.
