Laughlin
Anglers are catching striped bass are up and down the river. Some are catching the fish from boats along Casino Row while drifting anchovies. Anglers on the north end of Big Bend are finding good action for both catfish and stripers in the marshy areas. 
 
Lake Mohave
Striped bass are active at the north and south ends of the lake. Some lucky boaters have reeled in fish as large as 18-pounds with anchovies in deep water. Though black bass are spawning in the shallows, anglers are finding that many beds are already vacant. In recent days fishermen have been finding the fish in shaded areas of coves and along weed beds. With weekly trout plants on tap, the fish have made their way downstream from Willow Beach.

Lake Mead
All warm water species are very active. The big news this spring is crappie. After several years on the slow end, the slab-sized sunfish has provided anglers with good action in the Overton Arm. Small jigs in white or silver colorations, and small crankbaits will catch the fish. Striped bass are pursuing shad near 33-Hole and along the east side of Boulder Basin. Government Wash has provided shoreline anglers with good fishing for stripers, some in the 5-pound class. Bass are still spawning, so catch-and-release fishing is encouraged.

Lake Mohave
Large striped bass are bending rods near Willow Beach. Anglers are pulling in stripers near Katherine Landing as well, though they are smaller than those caught at Willow. The fish are taking anchovies, swimbaits and poppers. Black bass action slowed over the weekend. Anglers are finding lots of vacated beds. Drop shots are catching and crankbaits are fooling fish still hanging out near beds.

Lake Mead

Warm water fish species like crappie and black bass are active in the Overton Arm. Water elevation is still up in the lake, so there are a few more fishing spots than we have had in the past. Anglers are catching striped bass in the 1- to 3-pound range outside Government Wash and along the east side of the Boulder Basin. Fishing has been best early in the morning and late in the day.
