Boaters Are Finding the Best Action For Striped Bass

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Boaters are finding the best action for striped bass. Mostly throughout the Las Vegas Bay area in about 60 feet of water. Fish between 16 and 18 inches are taking anchovies and shad. Shore anglers are reporting success with smaller fish when using jigs and crankbaits. Black bass anglers are having luck in coves near Callville Bay and Temple Bar. The fish are beginning to come up into the shallows in preparation for spawning season.  Corn is the go-to bait for catfish anglers. The afternoon bite is proving to be strongest for fish in the 3- to 4-pound range.
