: LAKE MEAD: Striper fishing is good for those anglers willing to brave chilly temperatures in the early mornings and at dusk. If you are looking for live bait, Vegas Wash is the place to net some shad. The stretch from Boulder Harbor to the Hemenway fishing pier has been fishing well. Look for areas where birds are rafting in numbers, this can be an indicator of where shad balls are located. Striped bass wont be far away.
