down by 33 hole (the end of the lake basically), striper fishing fishing with live shad is fair to good, depending on the weather. most days we catch 25 3lb fish. we are using a casting net for the shad in the cove. Medium activity with boats (20 or less). Anchor up, have fun.. should be good through christmas

With steady afternoon temps in the 60\'s the water has warmed up a bit. Caught 3 fish all shallow in the thickest cover you can find. Cold front this weekend will slow things down, but they should be moving up to pre spawn areas soon. Favorite time of year to be on the water.

- I\'m from the East Coast where Carolina Rigs/Texas rigs reign supreme...the bass in this lake, however, loveeee Rattle traps especially when trolling close to shore.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 82 degree water temperature. Bass will start moving much slower and feeding less aggressively until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, it's time to get out fishing early and late in the day when the sun is not on the water. When you can get out for the entire day, it's a great time to fish some deeper water. Many large bass are taken this time of year since bass fishermen typically gets out deeper and fish slower with larger baits. Like any other time of year, the slower you fish with bigger baits on the deep drops and river channels, the better chance you have at a lunker. This is a great time to catch a trophy. Good luck out there today!

Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Your lake crappie will be much more lethargic in the water temperature. They will be in deeper and cooler water. Crappie will be feeding; however they will not be feeding aggressively unless the other fishing factors are at prime levels. Find some moving water that is clear and you should find some more aggressive fishing.

Lake Mead Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- As the water warms up I see alot of fishermen losing their bait from the smallest strikes.Try threading your baits with an anchovie needle.Took me years to figure it out but an old timer showed me how and I catch alot more fish,because the bait tends to stay on when it's hot outside.So I spend a lot more time fishing than
baiting my hook!Only one place in vegas that Ive found that carries them LAKE MEAD BAIT AND TACKLE SHOP if your local and you fish you'll know where it's at!!!!!!
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Unlike most North American fish species, blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish are comfortable when the water temperature is this high. They will be feeding and moving in typical patterns. You will start having a little better luck if you can get to some moving water that is adding a little more oxygen for the baitfish and the catfish will be there also.

Lake Mead Striped Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Striped fishing has picked up. Head to the lake if you have been anxious to see those boils. The
mouth of boulder harbor has been successful with morning and late evening boils. Fish anything
that mimics a shad or any white topwater lure. The shad however, have been small but have been
showing up in abundant little schools throughout the shallows and coves. Watch for signs of
breaking water surface and diving birds.
Callville bay has been good as well. With boils here and there, you just need to look out to find
them or have the patience and they will show themselves to you.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
