Lake Mead Fishing Report

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Aaron Meier

Striped bass are hitting live shad, anchovies and lures. Anglers are finding good numbers of the baitfish in the Vegas Wash area. Angel, at Laker Plaza, reports that 6- to 8- inch swimbaits in white and chartreuse color variations also have been catching the stripers. Some of the best action is taking place outside of Boulder Harbor. Echo Bay and surrounding waters have been the place for black bass. Regardless of where one is fishing, higher success rate has gone to those on the water earlier in the morning.
