Stripers are still boiling throughout the Boulder Basin

Lake Mead - Boulder City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Stripers are still boiling throughout the Boulder Basin. Anglers are reporting more consistent action a few hours before sunset. Live shad is the bait of choice, but topwater lures are landing nice catches too. Black bass are most active in the morning in the back of coves with heavy vegetation. Successful anglers have reported using Rat-L-traps from shore where large rocks or vegetation offer cover for fish. For catfish try corn or anchovies fished off the bottom in Government Wash or at the Hemenway Fishing Pier.
