Las Vegas-area fishing report

■ LAKE MEAD — Anglers still are finding striper boils from the Vegas Wash to the Overton Arm. Targeting these schools of feeding stripers is generating the most success. When there are no boils to be seen, try jigging with an anchovy or spoon. Channel cats are hitting cut anchovies and stink baits fished off the bottom. Largemouth and smallmouth bass fishermen are landing fish with plastics fished near the coves and tires of the marinas.

■ LAKE MOHAVE — Action at Willow Beach remains fair to good for trout following the Friday morning trout plant. A few lunker stripers were landed from mile markers 49 to 53. Anglers should try large trout imitation lures for a double-digit fish. Fishing at Cottonwood Cove remains difficult. Only a few stripers have shown in the creel while fishing with anchovies from 30 to 50 feet deep. Catfish can be caught with cut anchovies or stink baits near coves. Largemouth and smallmouth anglers are having fair success with a variety of top-water and shallow-diving lures and soft plastics. The biggest fish during a recent tournament topped 5 pounds.

■ LAS VEGAS URBAN PONDS — Catfish continue to bite shrimp and stink baits. Success has diminished because of the recent storm fronts.

■ KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — Fall temperatures are turning on the trout. Kirch should be producing good-sized rainbows. Bass fishing should remain fair for the rest of the month.

■ EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — Trout fishing has been excellent. Rainbows and tigers are hitting PowerBait, lures, worms, marshmallows and flies. Browns are preparing to spawn and should start becoming aggressive.

■ ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — Trout fishing is good despite the low water level. Several methods can be used to catch the recently planted rainbows, including still-fishing with bait, fly-fishing or throwing lures. Fishing off the dam is a good place to start.
