Bass Are Getting Ready to Spawn

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Smallmouth and largemouth bass are getting ready for the spawn, and anglers are catching the fish in coves near drop-offs. Anglers are using a variety of worms and swimbaits in greens and sliver for black bass. Crappies are hitting crankbaits in the Overton Arm. Casting Rat-L-Traps into murky, shallow areas is proving successful. Catfish are biting on anchovies at night in the Las Vegas Bay area.
