Striper Boils are Giving Anglers Fast Action!

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Aaron Meier

Anglers are finding the best fishing in the morning hours before the storms come up from the south. Striper boils are giving anglers fast action with top-water baits. When coming to a boil cast from the outside to avoid spooking the fish.  Silver and yellow Crankbait and jigs have worked well. Zara Spooks, Jumpin’ Minnows, pencil poppers and shad imitations also will catch the fish. Cut anchovies are bringing in stripers off the bottom during the nighttime hours. Catfish action has been good in recent days. Fish in the 3- to 4-pound class have been pulled from depths up to 60 feet.
