Southern Nevada Fishing Reports - Laughlin, NV

Fishermen are catching striped bass in a variety of sizes in a variety of places along the river. They are getting good at stealing anchovies, especially as the bait thaws out. Keep them on ice until you need them. Stripers in the 4- to 5-pound range have been caught from the shoreline below Davis. The odd catfish is taking bait as well.

Lake Mohave
Fishing has been good for boaters when the weather cooperates. Catfish are biting on anchovies in the Cottonwood Basin near Nine Mile Cove. Smallmouth and largemouth bass are holding in coves above Cottonwood Cove and have been hitting jigs and creature baits. Striped bass have been taking trout imitations at Willow Beach. Fish them slowly and near the surface in the mornings and evenings. The Willow Beach National Fish Hatchery plants rainbow trout on Fridays.

Lake Mead
Anglers are catching fish between storm fronts. Striped bass and catfish are biting on anchovies fished off the bottom in the Boulder Basin. Live shad, gizzard and threadfin generally are the most productive bait for those who prefer naturals. The 3D Crawfish and chartreuse plastic worms are fooling black bass in coves near the dam and around Callville Bay.

Southern Nevada Fishing Report - July 5, 2017
Striped bass action has been reported below Davis Dam and through casino row. Anglers are using anchovies and also hoping for catfish bites. Any shore fishing is going to be more difficult with weeds growing thicker. Anglers fishing from a boat have had success past the vegetation using poppers and trout swimbait for topwater lures.

Lake Mohave
Largemouth and smallmouth bass are more active at points with vegetation reaching out into the water. Some fishermen are having success from kayaks and fishing for striped bass using anchovies or swimbaits. One angler caught a 33-pound striped bass last weekend outside Willow Beach using a topwater lure. Most fishermen will use swimbait or poppers.

Lake Mead
The striper bite is steady. Anglers have had success fishing the cove entrances for striped bass in the early morning and switching to deep diving lures after the heat of the day has warmed the surface waters. Trolling with shad has worked for many through Las Vegas Bay area and outside Boulder Beach.
