Winter Striper bite still hot.

Jamie Flanagan

Lake Mead - Freshwater Fishing Report

We've been to the lake 3 times in the last few weeks and caught plenty of 2 to 5 lb stripers on each trip. The Striped Bass are running in the 30 to 40 ft deep range and biting on both lures and cut bait (anchovies and shad).

Shore fishing is also good on points where dropoffs make reaching those depths possible form the bank. Luckily the lake is surrounded by lots of these points.

The health of the striped bass population seems to be improving a bit unless the skinny "razorbacks" have slowed their bite and the healthier ones are coming in to the shallows. Some of the stripers are experiencing a false spawn already or are trying to spawn a bit too early.

Lake Mead Fishing Forecast:

The bite should keep going as long as this weekends storms do not cool the water too much. The stripers should continue their strong mid-winter bite when the storms subside.

Target Species:

Striped Bass
