Fishing Report
July 18, 2014
The lake level today is 642.3 feet above msl. Reports are that smallmouth and largemouth are hitting on the lake in the coves and on the shelves near the dam but that stripers are much harder to find. The high lake level submerges shoreline vegetation which attracts bass. Reports of people catching both black bass species are common. Mixing up your colors with plastics is doing well on largemouth and smallmouth. Latest report has night crawlers doing the best for bass on Lake Mohave. Stephen and son Dylan caught a beautiful 2.82 lbs. smallmouth near Princess Cove. That is one of the coves AZGFD and NDOW are installing fish habitat. Submersible lights fished during the new moon are an effective way to catch stripers. Next new moon will be July 26. Cut anchovies usually work the best for stripers. Catfish are still being taken in the coves on both sides of the lake. Biologists from both Arizona Game and Fish Department and Nevada Division of Wildlife with the help of volunteers, National Park Service and Bureau of Reclamation personnel have continued to install fish habitat in Carp Cove, Box Cove, Shoshone, Princess and Arrowhead. Prospect Cove (1st cove south of Princess Launch Ramp) is the latest addition on the Arizona side of the lake to get habitat deployed. Fish habitat consists of PVC structures, tamarisk bundles and a new type of habitat we call poly shrubs. The largemouth, smallmouth, bluegill and catfish are really utilizing the new structures. Additional habitat will be added at several locations over the next two years. These structures are fish magnets. There is a wheelchair accessible fishing pier just south of the main launch ramp at Katherine's Landing. If you fish Mohave and are having luck, please e-mail me at gcummins@azgfd.gov so I can share your successes with others.
