Pre-spawning black bass are starting to show up

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Pre-spawning black bass are starting to show up in coves with shelves. Anglers are catching the fish with plastic worms on dropshots and light-colored swimbaits. In the Overton Arm, anglers are targeting striped bass and crappies. Stripers are taking swimbaits around 40 feet. Tube jigs and minnow spinners are tempting crappies. In the Hemenway area, stripers in the 1- to 2-pound range are eagerly hitting anchovies, Glide Baits, and Rat-L-Traps.
