The water is starting to warm up and the fish should be getting ready to spawn in the next few weeks. The lake is up a couple of feet from the last time I fished these coves in November and there is new submerged cover alongs some of the shorelienes and what used to be peninsulas are now islands. I was out for largemouth and had limited myself to cranks and swimbaits only for the day as those are two things that I want to add to my arsenal this year. Didn't catch anything but did have a good strike right at the boat with a small Reaction Strike ghost shad silent lipless crankbait. Las Vegas wash is full of shad, huge shools of them on the fish finder. The carp are also active in the area. I'm guessing the striper bite was pretty good based on the number of boats in the cove. There were several anglers in bass boats pitching to the new submerged cover along the shore. The water was extremely cloudy with what appeared to be pollen with visibility on the downwind sides of the coves around 2-3 feet. On the upwind sides visibility was closer to 10 feet.

With cooler weather here to stay, now is not only a good time, but also an enjoyable time to go fishing. Anglers have reported moderate success for striped bass, catfish and smallmouth bass, with afternoons providing the best fishing. Largemouth bass have been a little harder to come by. Jigging has been the most successful technique for catching striped bass. Trolling in the Boulder Basin also has been productive. Drop shot rigs fished around cliff walls, rocky points or areas with submerged weed beds have been productive for smallmouth bass. Catfish are active in the backs of coves at night and are hitting a variety of baits, such as hot dogs, chicken livers or corn.
