: LAKE MEAD: Following the frequent rains, fish have been hanging deeper and despite seeing fish or having them appear on fish finders, the fish have been less inclined to bite. Some attribute this to the turbidity of the water or moon phases, both of which should improve with no rain forecast for the weekend and the new moon on Monday, Aug. 25. Catch reports are all over the place with the fish taking lures generally intended for other targeted species. Despite inconsistencies with their usual fishing practices, anglers are finding success. Lures and jigs seemed to be the trick this week with biting the best during the early morning.
