Fishing Report

■ LAKE MEAD — The Vegas Wash area continues to produce fish, though in fewer numbers. Fishermen have used a variety of baits, from hardware to anchovies. Participants in two weekend bass tournaments did not catch many fish, some weighing in at 3 to 4 pounds. The Nevada Department of Wildlife planted rainbow trout at Hemenway and Crawdad coves Tuesday and plans to stock those locations again Friday.

■ LAKE MOHAVE — Trout anglers at Willow Beach had success for rainbows after weekly plants by the National Fish Hatchery. Most fish are in the 13-inch range. PowerBait in all varieties, as well as worms and salmon eggs, have been effective. Hardware options include Jakes, Panther Martins, Mepp’s, Super Dupers and Rooster Tails. The NDOW stocked trout at Place Cover and Aztec Cove on Tuesday. The next plant is scheduled for Jan. 27. The striper bite has been slow.

■ URBAN PONDS — Action has been a little sluggish. The NDOW stocked the ponds with rainbow trout Tuesday. The next plant is scheduled for Wednesday. With temperatures warming, anglers might find some catfish holding over from last summer’s plants.

■ KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — Anglers have fished through 6 to 7 inches of ice, but unseasonably warm temperatures might have thinned it. Fishermen are urged to use caution when venturing onto the ice. Action has been sluggish, and fish have been on the small side.

■ EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — Fishermen are pulling rainbow and tiger trout through about 11 inches of ice, with much of the action taking place near the dock. PowerBait and night crawlers with marshmallows have been effective.

■ ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — Anglers have caught trout and even some largemouth bass. The ice is not thick, so caution is advised.
