Fish Report for 1-12-2022
NDOW Southern Fishing Report
by Nevada Department of Wildlife
Anglers have been venturing out on about 8 inches of ice and have found success dropping night crawlers and PowerBait. NDOW urges anglers to use extreme caution on the ice, to check weather conditions and always go prepared for weather changes. Contact Spring Valley State Park for current ice conditions.
The reservoir is mostly covered in thin ice. There are some open sections, but it is not safe for ice fishing. Contact Echo Canyon State Park for current ice conditions.
ive shad, anchovies, and soft plastics are producing striper bites. Anglers are seeing schools cruising in about 30 to 40 feet of water. Reports of black bass action are coming in from Hemenway, Temple Bar, and the Overton Arm. Some anglers are experimenting with hard plastics in shad and bluegill patterns, while others are committed to soft plastics on Ned rigs. Crappie are biting tube baits in coves of the Overton Arm.
Willow Beach anglers are seeing rainbow trout activity throughout the day. Boaters in the area are battling weeds and are finding the best fishing conditions south of the marina. Lake Mohave boaters are trolling swimbaits to tempt striped bass at the openings of coves near Davis Dam. Black bass are hitting both soft and jointed plastics near shore.
Shore anglers are staying busy catching limits of rainbow trout. Trout jigs and mice tails in bright colors are working well. Anglers are throwing soft swimbaits 10-15 feet from shore to land stripers weighing more than 5 pounds.
Ice conditions are questionable due to various weather conditions. Recent rain and snowstorms created muddy roads and thin ice around the shorelines. NDOW urges visitors to use extreme caution while visiting the area.
The Nevada Department of Wildlife planted rainbow trout in the valley ponds. The fish have been taking a variety of worms and spinners. The most popular baits are rainbow-colored PowerBait, night crawlers, mealworms, and mini marshmallows with a salmon egg.
