Fishing is Expected to Pick Up This Weekend

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Black bass anglers are using shad swimbaits and soft plastics to target fish near Callville Bay and Echo Bay. Crappie anglers are trying their luck with pearl and chartreuse crappie jigs in the Overton Arm. In the Las Vegas Bay area, stripers between 1 and 3 pounds are taking shad swimbaits and anchovies thrown from shore. Larger fish are cruising in about 50 feet of water throughout the Boulder Basin. Anchovies, shrimp, and marshmallows are working well for catfish in the evening hours. Fishing is expected to pick up with air temperatures peaking in the 70’s this weekend.
