FISHING REPORT

■ LAKE MEAD — Largemouth and smallmouth bass action is sluggish but shows signs of picking up. A four-fish bag weighing more than 13.5 pounds won the Ultimate Bass tournament last weekend. The biggest fish came in at 4.95 pounds. Anglers fishing for striped bass are still catching small striped bass in the Vegas Bay arm. At Crawdad Cove, one lucky angler caught an 18-pound striper while fishing from shore. The Nevada Department of Wildlife plans to stock trout at Hemenway and Crawdad Cove today.

■ LAKE MOHAVE — Fishing has gone from slow to fair. Striped bass are taking cut anchovies drifted in 30 to 40 feet of water, and catfish have been hitting prepared baits. Largemouth bass are hitting a variety of top-water and shallow-diving lures. The winners of the weekend’s American Bass Anglers tournament had five fish totaling more than 14 pounds, and the biggest fish weighed more than 5.5 pounds. Swimbaits are taking large stripers — some reaching double digits in weight — south of Willow Beach.

■ URBAN PONDS — The NDOW conducted trout plants Tuesday at Floyd Lamb Park, Sunset Park and Veterans Memorial Park.

■ KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — The ice has come off reservoirs. Fishing pressure remains extremely light. Be wary of changing weather conditions.

■ EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — No information on ice conditions is available. Use caution when venturing onto the ice. Anglers have been catching stocked rainbows near the dock and launch ramp as well as Copper Point. Mealworms, PowerBait, worms and marshmallows have been effective.

■ ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — This Lincoln County reservoir is ice free. Trout anglers often find success in the deep water along the dam or near the water inlet at the reservoir’s upper end.
