Fishing Report, March 29

■ LAKE MEAD — Striper action is slow to fair, though anglers are catching a few fish in the Vegas Wash and Overton Arm. Anglers working the water near the Hemenway fishing pier are finding some success, with the best action coming during the evening. Action for smallmouth and largemouth bass has been picking up as the fish have moved into prespawn mode. Anglers have found success with plastics as well as top-water lures. Catfish action is slow, but cut baits are catching some fish. Most fish are less than 4 pounds.

■ LAKE MOHAVE — Willow Beach action remains fair for large striped bass. Anglers last week caught fish weighing as much as 28 pounds. The most productive areas are between mile markers 45 and 52. Some stripers have hit anchovies, but most action is on large trout imitations such as the AC Plug and Spro. Bass action has been good for anglers fishing out of Cottonwood Cove. Bass are beginning to spawn.

■ LAUGHLIN — Although the season’s last trout plant took place early this month, anglers still are catching planters in the Laughlin area. Fish pushing the 4-pound mark have been caught in some of the deeper holes.

■ URBAN PONDS — Weekly trout plants have ended for the season, but anglers still are catching fish. Anglers at Floyd Lamb Park have found yellow PowerEggs a good bait choice. Others have had success when the eggs are combined with a mealworm. Limit is three fish.

■ KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — All reservoirs are free of ice, but unsettled weather conditions and high winds have kept fishing to a minimum.

■ EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — Eagle Valley is free of ice, and the trout have been biting. Anglers are having the most success with PowerBait, night crawlers and small spinners. While anglers are mostly catching rainbow trout, there are some reports of tiger trout taking baits. Limit is five trout.

■ ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — Action is good for rainbow trout, but the bass and crappie bite remains slow.
