Lake Mead Fish Report

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

With cooler weather here to stay, now is not only a good time, but also an enjoyable time to go fishing. Anglers have reported moderate success for striped bass, catfish and smallmouth bass, with afternoons providing the best fishing. Largemouth bass have been a little harder to come by. Jigging has been the most successful technique for catching striped bass. Trolling in the Boulder Basin also has been productive. Drop shot rigs fished around cliff walls, rocky points or areas with submerged weed beds have been productive for smallmouth bass. Catfish are active in the backs of coves at night and are hitting a variety of baits, such as hot dogs, chicken livers or corn.
