■ LAKE MEAD — Anglers are targeting striped bass with jigs and top-water lures. Stripers also are hitting cut anchovies and live shad. Anglers are fishing striper boils throughout the Vegas Wash and in the upper basins. The fish should become increasingly active during daylight hours as we move into fall. Meanwhile, fishing under lights is productive on dark nights. Catfish continue to bite near 33 Hole and are taking cut anchovies and stink baits.
■ LAKE MOHAVE — Trout fishing continues to be good at Willow Beach. One angler recently landed a 23-pound striper while using a trout-imitating lure. Fishing at Cottonwood Cove has been fair. Catfish have provided good action, especially at night. Anglers are catching the whisker fish from boats as well as the shoreline.
■ URBAN PONDS — Fishing has been slow to fair. The bluegill that have been biting at Floyd Lamb Park are hitting mealworms. Catfish have been taking stink baits.
■ KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — Anglers report good bass fishing on all reservoirs. A pontoon or kick boat might give anglers increased chance of success as they can access more water than shore anglers. Top-water and diving lures are working. No report on trout.
■ EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — Anglers are catching rainbow trout in the morning and evening off the dam and dock with PowerBait, marshmallows and worms. A few tigers are being taken near the upper end, though the weeds make fishing difficult this time of year.
■ ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — Morning and evening hours are best, with fair fishing during the day. Trout are hitting PowerBait and worms as well as damsel fly patterns. Crappie are taking worms and flies. Bass fishing has been good near the upper end of the reservoir.
