Lake Mead Fishing Report

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Catfish are taking anchovies in the backs of coves. Stink baits, night crawlers and chicken livers will also catch the fish. Largemouth bass are still a little harder to come by, but fishing should pick up when water temperatures increase. Ghost shad crank baits are rumored to be taking a few fish hanging around drop-offs. In the area of Government Wash, Rat-L-Traps have been producing well for the stripers.  Anglers netting shad in the Vegas Wash have been surprised to find tilapia as large as three pounds in their cast nets.
