: LAKE MEAD: Anglers are enjoying an increase in black bass action throughout Las Vegas Bay. Both largemouth and smallmouth are taking a mix of topwater lures and crankbaits in shad and trout patterns. Soft plastics in green pumpkin and watermelon are working well too. Striped bass are showing a preference for walking baits and live shad if you can net them. Boils are being reported throughout the area of Temple Bar from first light to about noon. The Boulder Beach fishing pier is a hotspot for catfish when using stink baits and worms.
