Fishing Report, Jan. 19

■ LAKE MEAD — Striper action has picked up at Temple Bar. The best action has come in the evening. Anchovies and sardines fished near the bottom in about 150 feet of water have produced fish. Anglers still are finding shad in the back of the Vegas Wash and near the Hemenway fishing pier, but the baitfish have moved toward deeper water. Trolling has produced fish in the early morning and evening. At Echo Bay, anglers have found success north of the launch ramp. Action for smallmouth and largemouth bass remains slow, though anglers have found success with a slow presentation.

■ LAKE MOHAVE — Willow Beach striper action remains slow. Anglers have found success with trout imitations. Stocked rainbow trout have provided good fishing after weekly trout plants. Cottonwood Cove has yielded stripers to anglers drift-fishing with cut anchovies. Night fishing also might yield success with stripers. Largemouth bass fishing remains slow to fair, with most fish hitting soft plastic baits.

■ LAUGHLIN — Stocked rainbow trout continue to provide good fishing. Floating baits and night crawlers are catching fish. Small lures also have shown success. Stripers have been slow, with best action on crank baits and anchovies.

■ LAS VEGAS URBAN PONDS — Weekly trout plants by the Nevada Department of Wildlife have resulted in good fishing. Lorenzi Park is not receiving fish because of planned construction activities at the park. Flies, worms, PowerBait and lures are productive in these waters. The limit is three fish.

■ KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — Haymeadow, Cold Springs and Adams-McGill reservoirs remain frozen. Anglers will find open water on Dacey Reservoir. Ice fishing is not recommended.

■ EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — Rainbow trout fishing remains good, with anglers continuing to catch 12- to 14-inch rainbows. A few tiger trout have been hauled through the ice, but action for browns remains sluggish.

■ ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — The reservoir is frozen over, but rising water levels are keeping the edges thin. Fishing is not recommended.
