: LAKE MEAD: Windy conditions have slowed fishing activity, though fishermen focusing on catfish have had good luck with stink baits and anchovies. Striper action has been steady for those using cut bait, but top-water season has arrived. There are reports of boils in the area from Boulder Harbor to Boxcar Cove. Black bass are reportedly taking plastics in coves. The current water elevation is about 1,075 feet. Be mindful of emerging rocks and sandbars.
