FISHING REPORT

• LAKE MEAD — Shad have moved into shallow water, and striped bass are following them in. Boils have been seen along the beaches, near Hemenway, at 33-Hole and in the Las Vegas Wash area. Anglers are catching stripers from one-half pound to 2 pounds in close, while those fishing in 80 to 100 feet of water are reeling in fish from 2 to 6 pounds on live shad and while jigging with Kastmasters.

• LAKE MOHAVE — Fishing remains good for shore and boat anglers out of Cottonwood Cove. Trolling and still-fishing techniques are catching striped bass. Boaters are netting fish to 9 pounds. Catfish are taking baits fished on the bottom. Action was slower at Willow Beach over the weekend, though anglers are catching trout and stripers. Boaters are catching stripers on swimbaits resembling rainbow trout.

• LAS VEGAS URBAN PONDS — The first Nevada Department of Wildlife trout plants of the year were completed Tuesday. Urban ponds can be found at Floyd Lamb, Lorenzi, Sunset and Veterans Memorial parks. Worms, PowerBait, Power Worms, small spinners and a variety of small flies should catch the fish.

• EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — Anglers are finding good action for stocked rainbows and tiger trout. Worms, worms combined with mini-marshmallows, and PowerBait are productive baits.

• ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — The water level is low, but anglers are catching rainbow trout near the dam. Nights are cold.

• KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — Rainbow trout and mosquitoes are biting, so anglers need to be prepared with insect repellent made with DEET.
