Southern Nevada Fishing Report

Anglers are catching stocked rainbow trout in the 12-inch class. The fish are taking PowerBait and spinners from below Davis Dam to the Big Bend of the Colorado State Recreation Area. Stripers weighing from 1 to 3 pounds are picking up anchovies fished off the bottom, but stripers pushing 5 to 8 pounds are hitting top-water lures and jerkbaits.
With the return of warm temperatures, catfish and black bass are active and biting. Look for both largemouth and smallmouth bass in the back of coves around Cottonwood Basin. They are hitting crawdads and plastic worms. Colors vary depending on water clarity. Willow Beach has been sluggish, but 3-pound stripers are taking anchovies.
Water temperatures are hovering near 65 and that has all our warm water species biting. Black bass are biting out of Callville Bay on silver colored crankbaits. Outside of Government Wash, anglers are catching striped bass with trout imitation swimbaits. Government Wash has been good for threadfin and gizzard shad. Catfish have been active and biting on anchovies fished off of shelves from shore in the evening.
