: LAKE MEAD: Anglers are having success in various areas around the lake, of note are coves in the Vegas Wash area and around Echo Bay. Netting shad has been a fairly easy task for those working around 33 Hole. Warming water is bringing out the smaller fish, which then attract the striped bass and anglers alike. Anglers report success for spawning largemouth bass near submerged brush and smallmouth bass near rocky points and drop-offs. The smallmouth bass are also proving to be more cooperative than the largemouth variety and are taking drop shots and buzzbaits.
