Lake Mead Fishing Report

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

With nighttime air temperatures holding in the 90-degree range, anglers have found the best action at sunrise and then again in the evening hours. This is the time when many fishermen fish under lights. Whether fishing during the day or night, go prepared with plenty of water and salty snacks. Boaters have found success while trolling for striped bass with gizzard or threadfin shad. Shore anglers have been catching both striped and largemouth bass. If you are looking for largemouth or smallmouth bass don’t overlook coves around Echo Bay in the Overton Arm.
