Nevada fishing report, April 2, 2015

LAKE MEAD — Anglers are having success in various areas around the lake, of note are coves in the Vegas Wash area and around Echo Bay. Netting shad has been a fairly easy task for those working around 33 Hole. Warming water is bringing out the smaller fish, which then attract the striped bass and anglers alike. Anglers report success for spawning largemouth bass near submerged brush and smallmouth bass near rocky points and drop-offs. The smallmouth bass are also proving to be more cooperative than the largemouth variety and are taking drop shots and buzzbaits.

LAKE MOHAVE — Smallmouth bass have provided the most action for anglers over the past week. The quality of fish has been impressive with most coming in at 2 to 3 pounds. Many can be found at rocky points in coves. Cast shallow and work the bait to depths up to about 25 feet. Willow Beach continues to produce the larger stripers with another fish topping 20 pounds caught over the weekend. It was fooled by a 12-inch AC Plug in rainbow trout colors.

LAUGHLIN — The areas near Big Bend State Park and the Nature Center are producing striped bass. Anchovies and lures in trout patterns are proving successful. The fish are averaging about 2.5 pounds. There is the occasional lunker that will come through, so be sure to check your drag and test your line.

URBAN PONDS — Action has been slow at Sunset and Floyd Lamb parks. No reports have come in for Lorenzi Park or Boulder City pond. Catfish plants are scheduled to begin around the middle of April.

KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — Rainbow trout action has been good this past week with anglers doing well using a variety of baits and small to medium lures. The upper portions — beyond the buoy lines — of Adams-McGill, Dacey, Haymeadow and Cold Springs are closed due to waterfowl nesting until August.

EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — Anglers have found good action for trout this past week along with pleasant weather conditions. PowerBait and night crawlers have worked well off the fishing dock or dam. Mepp’s spinners and Rooster tails also have been working well.

ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — Rainbows have been taking a variety of baits and lures this past week. Rainbow, orange, or green PowerBait have been working well. Activity at the park has increased with the good weather and pleasant temperatures.
