Stripers in the 3- to 5-Pound Range

Colorado River - Laughlin - Laughlin, NV

by Aaron Meier

Striped bass are cruising the river below Davis Dam and hitting on anchovies or large crankbaits. Anglers are catching a few stripers in the 3- to 5-pound range, but most fish are averaging 1 to 2 pounds. One lucky angler reeled in a catfish weighing 13 pounds below Big Bend of the Colorado State Recreation Area. The angler was fishing with anchovies from his boat at night.
