LAKE MEAD — Bad weather kept anglers away from the reservoir for much of last week. A few anglers reported catching trout immediately after the plant at Boulder Harbor. Anglers who caught striped bass had to work for them. One lucky angler reported catching a 9-pound striper while trolling near Boulder Beach. Fishing should improve this weekend.

LAKE MOHAVE — Trout fishing at Willow Beach has been fair for anglers using PowerBait, salmon eggs, small lures and flies. Anglers reportedly have been catching double-digit-size stripers downriver on AC plugs.

Fishing out of Cottonwood Cove has been slow to fair, and inclement weather conditions last week didn’t help. A few anglers have had success for stripers and largemouth bass while throwing hardware. A boating angler caught a 5-pound catfish while still-fishing with anchovies.

URBAN PONDS — The Nevada Department of Wildlife planted trout Tuesday. That should result in good action this weekend. Fishing with small flies or lures is productive, as is still-fishing with PowerBait in a variety of colors.

KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — Ice is about 8 inches thick on all reservoirs except Dacey, which has open water. Inflows on Adams-McGill can make the ice thin. Anglers are catching carry-over trout on all reservoirs.

All public access roads have been bladed after recent storms, but four-wheel drive vehicles are recommended. Always check the ice before venturing forth for ice fishing. Call the management area before visitation at 775-238-0240.

EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — Spring Valley Park supervisor Ben Johnson reports good fishing for pan-size trout. Anglers are pulling the fish through 16 to 17 inches of ice using bright orange and green PowerBait and night crawlers.

ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — Ice is 7 inches thick, but anglers are advised to use caution before walking on or drilling a hole through the ice. Water coming in from the stream at the head of the reservoir can make the ice too thin for ice fishing.
