good Action for Striped Bass!

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Aaron Meier

Despite the arrival of summer-like temperatures, anglers have found good action for striped bass. Live shad, anchovies, jigs and various lures are catching fish in the Las Vegas Bay area. Stripers can be found chasing bait at the opening of coves and throughout the wash. Catfish are hitting many of the same baits. Black bass species are still providing anglers ample fishing opportunity, with most being caught along points outside of Callville Bay and near Hemenway. The average size is 2 to 3 pounds.
