The striper bite is up on Lake Mohave. There has been some smallmouth action along the shelves with plastics in a pumpkin-cinnamon color or the dark blue with flakes. The same type of plastics are going for the largemouth and various crank baits have been producing a few as well.

Below the Davis Dam along the Colorado River we are having a great mix of fish to target. Near Davis Camp Randy Young was fishing for stripers and landed a carp. He was fishing from shore and using anchovies. This is a favorite bait for our area and catches a lot of fish. One thing about anchovies is that you never know what you will bring in! Anglers have a good chance of catching a striped bass but you might catch a catfish or a carp, every now and then you can even get a rainbow using anchoives. Our local angler Mike Andrews was fishing in the Big Bend area from shore and landed a 10.58 pound striper at 35 and 1/2 inches. This is a little light for a fish of this length. The stripers are running mostly in the 1 to 3 pound range with these fish moving in schools the smaller fish seem to get to your bait first . Doug Songer is holding a 1.2 pound striper at 15 inches this size makes a great fish fry the filet out easy with your limit at 10 for stripers this is a great pan size fish. But make sure you have a good knot and have your drag set because there are some larger fish in the mix.

In the Community Park area you might be able to find some rainbow trout, they do like the cooler water so I would suggest an early morning excursion. Our local angler Don Calvano was using his fly rod to land his limit of trout in the Community Park shore line. This is an all-a-round super area for all types of recreation. Our parks staff has done a lot for our community to be able to use this area.

Hope this helps for now and we will see you in soon to share that catch and story most of all thanks for all of your support Now Go Catch A Fish Rusty Riviera Marina 520 Riviera Blvd. Bullhead City Az. 928-763-8550
