Lake Mead Fishing Report

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Look for striped bass boiling on the surface over deeper waters. Top-water baits like the Jumpin’ Minnow or Zara Spook will catch the fish. Anglers also have been finding and using threadfin shad as live bait to catch the fish. There are random mountains submerged below the water’s surface and make great hangouts for schools of stripers. Largemouth bass seem to like coves and points along the north end of the lake outside of Callville Bay. There are great coves in this area with lots of underwater vegetation.
