■ LAKE MEAD — Anglers are still finding shad throughout the lake. Threadfin shad can be used as live bait, but until a regulation change is made, gizzard shad must be dead before storing them or using them as bait. Early-morning action is fair to good in the Vegas Wash arm. Striped bass are providing a mix of top-water and submerged-bait fishing. Elsewhere, one angler reeled in a 20-pound striper out of Temple Bar, and a 10-pound catfish was caught in the same area. Smallmouth and largemouth bass haven’t been jumping into live wells, but anglers are catching a few on swimbaits and lures.
■ LAKE MOHAVE — Cut anchovies are catching striped bass, catfish and even a few largemouth bass. One angler came in with a stringer of 20 stripers. Fishing is good near Willow Beach, with some catches pushing past 20 pounds. Trout fishing is good after weekly plants by the Willow Beach National Fish Hatchery.
■ LAUGHLIN — Anglers are catching striped bass and a few carryover rainbow trout along Casino Row and south toward Big Bend of the River State Park. The Willow Beach National Fish Hatchery will begin its fall and winter stocking program in October.
■ LAS VEGAS URBAN PONDS — The Nevada Department of Wildlife stocked catfish at Floyd Lamb Park, Sunset Park and Veterans Memorial Park on Sept. 14. NDOW is asking anglers to observe the three-fish limit on these ponds.
■ KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — Action has picked up for rainbow trout. Try night crawlers or PowerBait. The largemouth bass bite is still good, though weedy conditions remain.
■ EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — The bite has been for stocked rainbows. PowerBait and night crawlers are working. Worms combined with mini-marshmallows also can be productive.
■ ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — Rainbow trout in the 10- to 13-inch range are biting on PowerBait or night crawlers. The crappie bite has been fair.
