19 lb striper being caught!

Lake Mohave - Cottonwood Cove, NV

by Aaron Meier

Fishing rocky shelves with drop shot rigs can produce Smallmouth Bass while the back waters with submerged brush hold Largemouth Bass. Striped Bass in the main body of the lake are taking Shad and Trout imitations near the mouths of coves. Willow Beach Marina has reported good striper action in the river with double-digit fish as large as 19 pounds being caught. Most fish are being taken near the marina and the rest are coming from down river. Trout imitation lures such as the Rago or AC Plug work well. Shore anglers are catching stocked rainbow trout in the early mornings below Willow Beach. They are using PowerBait.
