Fishing Report, Dec. 20

■ LAKE MEAD – Anglers have had moderate success while trolling top-water plugs off the points. The most productive areas have been the Overton Arm, the waters outside of Callville Bay and Government Wash. Most of the stripers are on the small side. Weather should be clear through the weekend, offering a great opportunity to get out and try your luck on the water.

■ LAKE MOHAVE – Willow Beach still is bringing in the big ones, with reports of 15- to 25-pound stripers bending rods near mile marker 50. Trout imitations like the AC Plug still are the lures of choice. Catfish still are hitting, and the trout action is good following the weekly plants by the Willow Beach National Fish Hatchery. Anglers working the water near Cottonwood Cove might want to try working the fish habitat structures that have been installed in Carp Cove, Box Cove, Shoshone and Arrowhead. These structures have attracted largemouth, smallmouth, bluegill and even catfish.

■ URBAN PONDS – With the storms that hit in the past week, the urban ponds saw a reduction in the number of anglers enjoying them. PowerBait, worms and flies can be effective in these ponds. The Nevada Department of Wildlife continues to plant trout weekly in the ponds at Floyd Lamb Park, Sunset Park and Veterans Memorial Park.

■ KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA – Cold Springs and Haymeadow have ice surrounding the boat ramps and along the dike. Adams-McGill Reservoir is fishable at the south end along the dam, and the launch ramps at Adams-McGill and Dacey reservoirs remain ice free. Anglers at Dacey will encounter significant amounts of floating vegetation along the dike and near the boat launch. Weather forecasts call for snow and lows down to 5 degrees.

■ EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR – Winter storms brought temperatures cold enough to freeze the upper end of the lake. There is ice along the dam as well, but the area around the fishing dock remains open. The few anglers who have braved the cold have had success with rainbows and tiger trout.

■ ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR – The upper end of the lake is frozen, but the lower end remains open along the dam. Action is good for the few anglers who are willing to fish in the cold.
