: LAKE MEAD: While details regarding fishing from the lake this week have been light, general consensus is it was good. This time of year anglers can find success working the openings of coves for stripers looking for shad. Casting plastic imitations or crankbaits into the shallows or against rocky outcroppings can work for largemouth and smallmouth bass. Working the coves into the evening or at night can also reward you with catfish that hang in these murkier waters. Anchovies will work on catfish as well as striped bass.
