Anglers are having success for smallmouth bass and stripers in the Government Wash

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Silver and green jerkbaits are tempting stripers around Kingman Wash and near drop-offs north of Boulder Beach. Anglers are having success for smallmouth bass and stripers in the Government Wash area using anchovies fished off the bottom and 6-inch swimbaits. Largemouth bass are still hard to find and will be until water temperatures begin to rise in the coming weeks.
