* LAKE MEAD — Striped bass are keying in on shad. Anglers are seeing boils in the morning hours in the Vegas Bay arm and along the beaches from Hemenway to Boulder Harbor. They are catching stripers from 2 to 6 pounds and catfish as large as 5 pounds. To be legal, a shad net can have a radius no larger than 3 feet. The Nevada Department of Wildlife plans to stock rainbow trout at Hemenway, Boulder Harbor and Crawdad Cove on Friday.
* LAKE MOHAVE — Anglers are catching stripers as large as 9 pounds while still-fishing or trolling north of Cottonwood Cove. Shore anglers are catching stripers in the 10- to 16-inch range closer to the marina. Bottom fishing with a variety of baits is catching catfish. Spoons, spinners and PowerBait caught stocked rainbows near the Willow Beach Fish Hatchery over the weekend. A trio of stripers topping 20 pounds each was reportedly caught on an AC Plug.
* LAS VEGAS URBAN PONDS — Stocked trout are hitting PowerBait trout worms in all colors as well as pink salmon eggs fished below a bobber. Spinners and small mayfly patterns also have been catching fish. The limit is three fish whether you keep them or give them away.
* EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — Fishing has slowed, though anglers still are catching trout. Worms combined with anything white, such as mini-marshmallows, are catching fish, as are PowerWorms, PowerEggs or PowerBait.
* ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — This Lincoln County reservoir is low. Rainbow trout can be found along the dam and near other structure.
* KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — Hunting and fishing pressure has been light and the action fair. Rainbow trout still are hitting baits, but the bass bite has shut down. Visitors will find skim ice conditions in the early morning, but it has been melting off as the day warms. The reservoirs probably won’t freeze up until December.
