Striped Bass Biting on Shad

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Striped bass are feeding on shad outside Las Vegas Wash. Most fish are around two pounds. Shad have been hard to find, but those who find them have also had success for stripers. The best fishing has been out in the deeper waters, 100-150 feet. Shore fishing has been slow. Clearer skies and warmer weather should make for a good fishing weekend.
