Lake Mead Fishing Report

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

High temperatures are keeping the fish in deeper water and out from the shoreline shore during the day, but the fish are coming after the sun goes down. Early risers are seeing boils in and around the coves. Sassy shads, Zara Spooks and Jumpin’ Minnows are good top-water options when fishing boils. Anglers have found some success for stripers along the tires near the marinas. Black bass fishing remains fair to good in the Boulder Basin and in the Callville Bay area where anglers are catching a mixed bag of largemouth and smallmouth bass. The fish are hitting crankbaits and soft plastics. Catfish are actively taking almost anything and are most active at night.
