Anchovies are a Top Bait

Colorado River - Laughlin - Laughlin, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

One angler brought in an 8-pound striper while fishing from his boat above Big Bend of the Colorado State Recreation Area.  He was using a shad swimbait.  Anchovies are a top bait for this stretch of the river as well, bringing in both striped bass and catfish.  Rainbow trout are slow to bite, but persistent anglers are bringing them in using PowerBait and spinners.
