: LAKE MEAD: Striper fishing is still going strong. Anglers are catching the fish with anchovies in the morning and evening hours. Look for live shad in the back of Vegas Bay. Overnight fishing for catfish has been good at Government Wash. Anglers are chumming the water to entice bites. Smallmouth bass are hanging out along cliff walls in about 20 to 25 feet of water. Some are finding success with drop shots rigs while others have caught fish with crankbaits.
