Southern Nevada Fishing Report - July 26, 2017
One-pound stripers are steady on the river to the Big Bend area. Some anglers have caught striped bass in the 5-pound range in Big Bend fishing from the bottom with anchovies. Catfish also are being caught near the Bend when fishing for stripers. Boat fishing near the dam has been a successful option for striper fishing.
The Willow Beach Hatchery still is producing trout for the river, so the stripers are moving around. Fishing is hit or miss, especially with the unpredictable weather. Largemouth and smallmouth bass are hiding in coves along Cottonwood Basin. Trout and shad swimbait and poppers are go-to lures for top-water action.
Sunset fishing has proven successful for those braving the temperatures. The local striper club had a tournament over the weekend, with participants catching several striped bass. Most were in the 1- to 3-pound range, and the winner caught a 5.5-pounder. Black bass fishing is good from Callville Bay to Echo Bay. Coves along the way are hiding bass under the vegetation.
