• LAKE MEAD — Despite high winds, anglers participating in a bass tournament last weekend checked in numerous five-fish limits. The Vegas Wash area continues to produce schooling stripers. Some are being taken while trolling, but most are coming on bait. Hemenway and the beach areas have given up a few stripers in the 1- to 3-pound range. The shad have gone deep again, probably because of cooling water temperatures near the surface.
• LAKE MOHAVE — Fishing conditions are slow.
• LAS VEGAS URBAN PONDS — Fishing birds such as cormorants and osprey still can be seen at some ponds, and they would move on if there were no fish. Look for trout where the birds are hanging out. Warm water species such as bass and bluegill are becoming more active. Plans are being made to stock catfish.
• EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — Rainbow and tiger trout continue to provide action. Some trout are exhibiting signs of spawning activity. Fish have been hitting hardware as well as worms and PowerBait. Small spinners such as a Panther Martin or a Mepps should draw strikes. Super Dupers, Little Jakes and Kastmasters might be good options, too.
• ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — Rainbow trout have been hitting at Echo Canyon State Park. Anglers have been catching fish on spinners, worms and prepared baits. Most trout fishermen work the water from the dam, where water is deeper than other parts of the reservoir. Anglers have seen some action from largemouth bass in the narrows. Most of the bass caught this spring were taken on spinners.
• KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA — Anglers have been taking trout and largemouth bass on hardware and flies. Bait fishermen have been doing well for trout with PowerBait and worms. Fly anglers should do well with nymph patterns and black or olive Woolly Buggers. Large leech patterns might produce a bass or two.
• COMINS LAKE — Fisheries biologist Chris Crookshanks said action remains fairly slow.
At nearby Cave Lake, anglers are hauling in trout on PowerBait, worms, spinners and flies.
