: LAKE MEAD: With the arrival of summer heat, anglers have shifted their activity to the grey light of morning and then again before dark. Look for stripers near submerged benches surrounded by deep water as the stripers are waiting to feed on bait fish. Largemouth bass are making their presence known and have shown up in many coves throughout the Vegas Wash. One angler reports that Rapala minnow lures have been catching these fish. With lower water levels be sure to keep an eye out for new islands and submerged rocks. Check launch ramp conditions before heading to lake.
