Lake Mead Fish Report

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The striper bite has been quite slow, but the action should improve as the cold front comes through and temperatures drop. Striped bass will start moving up in the water column where anglers can find improved fishing at depths between 25 and 40 feet. There has been an abundance of bait, mainly small gizzard shad, which explains the sluggish striper action. Catfish are still hitting on anchovies or corn. The bite for smallmouth and largemouth bass will slow down as the water turns cooler as well.
