We are having a great stripped bass season. Both Lake Mohave and here along the shores of the Colorado River below the Davis Dam the striper action is doing well. 

Up on Lake Mohave Daniel Wadsworth was fishing near the basin of where the lake opens up.  Dan was fishing with various lures mostly in a shad pattern to land this catch he had a total of 8 stripers 7 here and one of the larger ones weighed in at 7.68 pounds and was 29 and 1/2 inches. This time of year Lake Mohave goes through a draw down where the lake is lowered for divers to harvest the larva of the endangered razor back sucker fish that are raised by the Willow Beach Hatchery. Anyway be careful as the lower water can hide underwater mountains. This also can bring in some nice catches of various species of fish. 

Here below the Davis Dam our portion of the Colorado River is also producing some nice stripers. Our local anglers Mark Munsinger and Terry Siner were able to land a limit each of these pan size stripers. They were using anchovies and drifting from the Big Bend Area to the nature center a great catch. They had the stringer tied to the outside of their boat and as the stringer got more fish the stripers were following them and that school kept getting bigger. 

Jake Anslo was fishing above the Rotary Park area using his favorite glide bait. It’s close to a trout bass pattern a custom make lure that he like and this time he landed a 35 and 1/2 inch striper that he released after this picture that he shared with me. 

Hope this helps for now and we look forward to seeing you in soon to share that catch and story. We will be getting some rainbow trout soon as our federal hatchery the willow beach hatchery has raised some great looking fish for our area. so we are looking forward to seeing some trout catches to share a reminder the limit of trout is 5 Thanks you for all of your support
