Bass Fishing Picking Up

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The number of anglers fishing for bass is increasing as largemouth and smallmouth move into the shallows for the prespawn. As the water continues to warm, the fish should begin making nests. Crankbaits, drop shot rigs and soft plastics are worth trying. Striper action has been slow and reports light, but fishing will improve as we move into spring. Night fishing under lights can be productive. A few anglers have found good shore fishing for catfish with anchovies. Weather has been unpredictable so be sure to check the forecast before heading out.
