■ LAKE MEAD — Overton Arm stripers have been active in the early mornings hitting soft plastics. Fishing has picked up in the Vegas Wash area. Live bait, if you can catch it, always is the most productive, but jigging and trolling with lures also is catching fish. Trout action has been good after trout plants, though things slow by the second day. Black bass action has been sluggish.
■ LAKE MOHAVE — Striper action has picked up, as have the number of reports of double-digit fish hitting large swim baits. Trout fishing is good after weekly plants. PowerBait, worms, spinners and other small hardware are productive. Farther south, fishing continues to be slow from the shoreline and for boaters. Some fishermen are picking up a few stripers and catfish, and largemouth bass are giving anglers action on a variety of lures.
■ URBAN PONDS — Action has been fair for stocked rainbow trout. In general, PowerBait, worms, worms with marshmallows and small spinners are productive bait options. When still-fishing for trout, anglers should keep in mind that smaller often is better when baiting their hooks. The Nevada Department of Wildlife planted trout Tuesday.
■ KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — Ice fishing is not recommended. Open water is accessible from the dams at Haymeadow and Adams-McGill reservoirs. Dacey is completely open. Temperatures are expected to drop significantly this week, and some of the open water should refreeze; however, ice conditions are expected to remain unsafe.
■ EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — Action remains slow, though anglers are managing to pull a few rainbow and tiger trout through 7 to 8 inches of ice. PowerBait and worms have been catching most of the fish.
■ ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — The ice is beginning to melt near the north end. Ice fishing is not recommended. Small lures or spinners might be productive in the open water near the bridge.
