: LAKE MEAD: Striped bass are hitting live shad and anchovies. One angler found some good action by slow trolling at about 100 feet in water pushing 120 feet deep. At the north end of the reservoir, fishermen are reeling in largemouth and smallmouth bass. Jigs and Rapalas can bring in the bigger fish. Dont be afraid to swap out baits when one is not producing.
