LAKE MEAD – Striped bass are biting along the beaches north of the Hemenway Launch Ramp. Chumming and fishing with cut anchovies is catching the fish in the early morning hours. Anglers are reporting good night-time fishing for stripers and catfish. Cut bait also has been catching small stripers in the Vegas Wash area, but shad are tough to find. Anglers are reporting some top-water action but it occurs only in brief spurts and the fish are lure-shy. Largemouth bass and smallmouth bass action remains good with anglers finding success with crankbaits, plastics and jigs.

LAKE MOHAVE – Willow Beach is producing large stripers for anglers throwing or trolling with large trout imitations. During the past week anglers have weighed in fish ranging from six to 29 pounds.
