Southern Nevada Fishing Reports*

Southern Nevada Fishing Report - August 23, 2017

Striped bass in the 1- to 3-pound class are schooling along Casino Row. A silver-colored Glide Swimmer or other swimbait thrown into a school of stripers can produce some good action. Anchovies fished off the bottom have been the top bait choice for stripers, but sometimes catfish will take them as well. Black bass are holding in the marshy areas below the casinos and hitting on spinnerbaits.

Lake Mohave
Anglers are catching striped bass and catfish throughout the lake from boats as well as from the shoreline. Swimbaits in trout patterns are fooling striped bass in the Willow Beach area. At the south end of the lake anglers are doing better using anchovies fished off the bottom from a boat. Black bass activity is beginning to pick up in the Cottonwood Cove area. 

Lake Mead
Las Vegas Bay continues to produce an ample supply of threadfin shad. Anglers using live shad have found success for striped bass and catfish while fishing in the bay from the shoreline or from a boat. Frozen anchovies are productive as well. Steep drop offs in this area tend to attract bigger fish, though the standard catch is somewhere in the 1- to 3-pound range. Black bass are taking soft plastics on the Arizona side near Kingman Wash.
