* LAKE MEAD — Stripers have been providing anglers with top-water action in the Vegas Wash area, though overall the fishing has been slow.
Anglers have been reeling in a few fish along the tires outside of Lake Mead Marina and Hemenway Harbor, as well as along the beaches. Anglers fishing out of Echo Bay have been reeling in stripers, catfish and smallmouth bass. Striped bass have been biting anchovies, sardines and hardware. A mid-diving silver-and-black minnow pattern trolled or cast has been productive. For catfish, try anchovies or stinkbait fished on the bottom.
* LAKE MOHAVE — Anglers have had success for rainbow trout fishing below the hatchery at Willow Beach. High winds in recent days have made fishing uncomfortable. In the lake’s southern reaches, anglers have found success for stripers, catfish and largemouth bass.
* LAS VEGAS URBAN PONDS — Recent catfish plants should provide plenty of opportunities. Try stinkbait, shrimp or night crawlers fished on the bottom. For bluegill, fish with mealworms suspended below a bobber.
* EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — Rainbow and tiger trout are active. Super Dupers, Panther Martins and Mepps spinners are good options. Mini-marshmallows combined with worms can be a productive.
* ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — Despite low water levels, anglers can catch rainbow trout. Try rainbow PowerBait, small spinners or worms.
* KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — Plump rainbows measuring up to 20 inches have been taking spinners, spoons, PowerBait and worms.
