Fishing Report, Jan. 26

■ LAKE MEAD — Striper action has remained fair at Temple Bar, with reports of 3-pound stripers common. Evening remains the best time for striper fishing. Anchovies or sardines fished near the bottom in about 150 feet of water are the best bet for stripers. Trolling has been productive 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. The shad have left the area for the season.

■ LAKE MOHAVE — Striper action at Willow Beach has picked up this week, with the best success coming with AC plug lures. There have been reports of stripers weighing up to 28 pounds, with the average striper coming in at 12 pounds. Stocked rainbow trout have provided good fishing after weekly plants. Cottonwood Cove has seen striper action. A few 7-pound stripers have been caught in about 40 feet of water while still-fishing. Drift fishing with cut anchovies also has been effective. Night fishing also might yield success with the stripers. Largemouth bass fishing remains slow to fair, with most fish hitting soft plastic baits.

■ LAUGHLIN — Anglers still are catching planted rainbow trout. The best action is on night crawlers, but floating baits and small lures also are having success. Stripers have been slow, with the best action on crank baits and anchovies.

■ 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. 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. Dacey has open, fishable water with about one-quarter of the reservoir being open water. Ice fishing is not recommended on any of the reservoirs.

■ EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — Rainbows still are being caught in the 12- to 14-inch range. The ice remains in fishable condition due to low overnight temperatures.

■ ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — The reservoir is frozen over, but rising water levels are keeping the edges thin. Fishing is not recommended. Ice in the canyon might be thick enough for fishing, but anglers should use caution.
