Lake Mohave - Cottonwood Cove, NV

The fishing dock at Katherine's Landing produced some nice fish. The bluegill and largemouth bass/smallmouth bass bite has stepped up with the warm temperatures. There are reports of a few smallmouth bass being taken off the shelves in the coves above the power lines. Plastics and crank baits are working well in this area.

The striper bite has returned according to reports. Down deep by the dam is the hottest spot. Lures that mimic trout are working for stripers and the hottest spots are in the dam area. Rodney caught a couple 7 pounders on anchovies fishing from shore. 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 Sept. 1. The next new moon will be Sept. 30. Cut anchovies usually work the best for stripers at night.

Biologists from both Arizona Game and Fish Department and Nevada Division of Wildlife with the help of volunteers, National Park Service, 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 gcummins@azgfd.gov so I can share your successes with others.

The lake level is currently 642.3 feet above msl.
