Lake Mohave Fish Report

Lake Mohave - Cottonwood Cove, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The lake level today is currently 642 feet above msl. The fishing dock at Katherine's Landing produced some nice fish. Bluegills are biting night crawlers near the dam and reports of people catching both black bass species are common. Smallmouths and largemouth are active now on the shelves near the drop-offs. The grass beds and submerged brush on the edges of the coves are a great place to find the black bass also.

Submersible lights fished during the new moon are an effective way to catch stripers. Check the moon phases before you go - the last new moon was March 20. Next new moon will be April 18. Cut anchovies usually work the best for stripers.

Biologists from both Arizona Game and Fish Department and Nevada Division of Wildlife with the help of volunteers, National Park Service, Arizona State Prison-Kingman Complex and Bureau of Reclamation personnel have continued to install fish habitat in Carp Cove, Box Cove, Shoshone, Princess and Arrowhead. Prospect Cove (1st cove south of Princess Launch Ramp) is the latest addition on the Arizona side of the lake to get habitat deployed. Fish habitat consists of PVC structures, tamarisk bundles and a new type of habitat we call poly shrubs. The largemouth, smallmouth, bluegill and catfish are really utilizing the new structures. Additional habitat will be added at several locations over the next two years. These structures are fish magnets.

There is a wheelchair accessible fishing pier just south of the main launch ramp at Katherine's Landing. If you fish Mohave and are having luck, please e-mail me at so I can share your successes with others.
