EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR

Trout action has been very good with the fish taking a variety of spinning lures and spoons. Bait anglers have been doing well from shore using a chunk of night crawler and PowerBait or a mini marshmallow.

ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR

Fishing has been good for rainbow trout. Anglers using kayaks or floatables to fish beyond the shoreline vegetation or those fishing from the dam are getting most of the bites. The fish are taking PowerBait in rainbow, orange, or green colorations, as well as Mepp’s spinners and Rooster Tails.

LAKE MEAD 

 Callville Bay and Echo Bay areas are hotspots for black bass. Jigs, crankbaits, and Ned rigs are all tempting fish, some weighing more than 2 pounds. Striped bass boils have slowed. Boaters are having moderate success casting shad-look swimbaits. Anglers targeting catfish are catching fish as large as 5 pounds when using chicken liver in weedy coves after sunset.

LAKE MOHAVE/WILLOW BEACH

Willow Beach boaters are jigging or trolling to catch striped bass. Trout-pattern lures are producing the most consistent results. Reports of striper boils are coming from the south end of Mohave near Katherine Landing and Davis Dam. The fish are hitting topwater lures and jerkbaits thrown just outside the boils. For a black bass bite, try Ned rigs in green pumpkin, swim jigs, or Rat-L-Traps.

LAUGHLIN

The striped bass bite has slowed down on the river. Small fish in the 1-pound range are taking anchovies in some areas, but anglers are struggling to catch a 10-fish limit. Rainbow trout plants continue at various locations along the river, providing ample opportunities for a hook-up. PowerBait, Panther Martin lures, and flies are all catching fish

 WAYNE E. KIRCH WMA

Water levels are steady. Aquatic vegetation is starting to decline, but windy days are pushing lines around. Overnight temperatures are below freezing. Rainbow trout action has been good from a boat. Stocked trout are taking Kastmasters, PowerBait, and night crawlers. Be cautious of weather changes. With waterfowl season underway you also can bag a few ducks.

URBAN PONDS

Fishing action is steady for bluegill and catfish in the ponds. Catfish are biting on night crawlers and hot dog pieces around sunset. The bass bite has slowed down. The Nevada Department of Wildlife began its seasonal trout plants at the community fishing ponds in the Las Vegas Valley this week. Floyd Lamb, Sunset, and Veterans Memorial parks all received fish. Cold Creek also received a load of fish. Stocked rainbows love night crawler pieces, PowerBait, and marshmallows.
