* LAKE MEAD — Heavy boating traffic associated with the holiday weekend kept many anglers off the water. Those who went out picked up a few stripers, mostly on live shad. Fishing for largemouth and smallmouth bass has been good.
Much of the action has been coming in the bays and coves from Callville Bay to Echo Bay.
* LAKE MOHAVE — Anglers are having a little success for striped bass. Channel cats are favoring chicken livers and anchovies. Largemouth bass have been active near Katherine Landing and in the coves north of Cottonwood.
* LAS VEGAS URBAN PONDS — Although the ponds have been stocked with catfish, fishing has been slow. Go to the bottom with stink baits, night crawlers or shrimp.
* EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — There was a lot of traffic Memorial Day weekend. Those catching fish did so on worms and PowerBait. Trout prefer smaller offerings on small hooks.
* ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — Largemouth bass, crappie and rainbow trout fishing has been good.
Crappie were hitting a small Gitzit fished about 2 feet below a pencil bobber. Bass were hitting just about anything. Trout seemed to favor flies.
* KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — Trout and bass are active. Flies, PowerBait and spinners should produce strikes from hungry rainbows. For bass, work the edge of reed beds with streamers, plastics and lures.
* COMINS LAKE — The trout finally have become more active and are hitting bait, spinners and flies, but their numbers aren’t what they once were.
Northern pike are taking their toll. Anglers who catch pike are encouraged to dispose of them rather than return them.
