High winds have kept many anglers off the lake. Reports of black bass action are coming in from the northwest area of the Boulder Basin. Largemouth are showing a preference for chrome crankbaits and smallmouth are hitting walking baits. Stripers are averaging 1-3 pounds, with anchovies being the bait of choice. The crappie bite is beginning to pick up in the Virgin Basin. Crappie jigs in chartreuse and pearl are good choices.
