: LAKE MEAD: Those anglers who have been out at first light are reporting more consistent success. Shad are still easily netted in the area of Vegas Wash, with more threadfin being caught recently than the gizzard shad. Anglers are finding the stripers not far from the schools of shad, many hanging in 40 to 50 feet of water. For those trolling lures, Shad Raps and Spinnows have been working well. Remember trying lures in various colorations may be the ticket to enticing the fish.
