Success for Smallmouth Bass

Lake Mohave - Cottonwood Cove, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Anglers have reported some success for Smallmouth Bass in the Cottonwood Basin. The fish are hitting watermelon worms and light green plastics.  Striped Bass seem to be holding at the north and south ends of the reservoir.  The area just north of Davis Dam may be a good option.  The Willow Beach National Fish Hatchery is planting trout each Friday.  Bait options include Woolly Buggers, worms, PowerBait and other commercial offerings, as well as spinners.
