Catfish action slowed, but anglers are catching some nice fish on the Colorado River at Laughlin

Colorado River - Laughlin - Laughlin, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

One fish weighing in at 6.8 pounds was reeled in from the shore near Rotary Park. The angler was using anchovies. Anglers throwing top-water lures and anchovies are catching striped bass in the one- to three-pound range. Smallmouth bass are still hitting lures in the Big Bend area but getting little fishing pressure. Trout stocking should resume next month but the holdover trout have been providing good action for anglers. Nightcrawlers are a good choice of bait for these fighters.
