Lake Mead Fishing Report

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Aaron Meier

Striped bass are providing anglers with plenty of action. Swimbait ranging from 3 to 12 inches in length and threadfin shad are catching the fish. Most are averaging between 3 and 5 pounds. Look for stripers in targeting shad near coves in 10 to 25 feet of water. For those seeking largemouth and smallmouth bass, areas near drop offs or the backs of coves between Callville Bay and Echo Bay are holding fish. Look for brush cover. Drop shots or crankbaits have been catching the fish. Crappies are biting in the Overton Arm.
