• LAKE MEAD — Anglers in the Vegas Bay arm are seeing striper boils at all times of day, especially near Sand Island, Government Wash and Boxcar Cove.
The catfish bite is good at 33-Hole and below Sunset Overlook.
Boaters anchored outside of the buoy line from Scuba Beach to Hemenway are catching stripers on cut bait.
• LAKE MOHAVE — Action has slowed at Willow Beach. The one bright spot for shore anglers is the fishing pier, where two 3-pound rainbow trout were reeled in last weekend. PowerBait, PowerWorms, night crawlers and spinners are being used.
Striper fishing also has been slow, especially from the shoreline, though some boaters have been catching stripers on Rattlin’ Rapalas.
Farther south, anglers are finding good fishing out of Cottonwood Cove. Anglers working from shore are having success for striped bass while still-fishing with cut anchovies from the points to the north and south of the marina. Catfish also are biting.
Boaters are netting stripers while still-fishing with cut bait or trolling whole anchovies on both sides of the small and large basins.
• LAS VEGAS URBAN PONDS — These local ponds can be found at Floyd Lamb, Lorenzi and Sunset parks in Las Vegas and at Veterans Memorial Park in Boulder City.
Bluegill usually will take small fly patterns, mealworms or white bread rolled into small balls. Catfish generally hit on stink baits, shrimp or thick night crawlers.
• EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — Rainbow trout have been slow to take bait, but olive or brown woolly buggers fished near the bottom might catch fish feeding on small crayfish. Otherwise, spinners, worms or PowerBait should get bites.
• ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — Fishing pressure is light and water levels low, but anglers are catching a few trout and largemouth bass.
• KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — Fishing has slowed for trout and bass anglers. The trout bite usually slows in the summer. The slowdown in bass action is due to the change in moon phases, and action should pick up again in the coming days.
• ELY AREA — Illipah and Cave Lake have been fishing well, with the most productive times being the morning and late-afternoon hours.
Cave Lake continues to produce planter rainbows in the 8- to 11-inch range. Bait choices include PowerBait, worms, spinners and nymph patterns.
