Southern Nevada Fishing Forecast

Thursday, March 24th, 2005

More than 300,000 rainbow trout will be stocked in reservoirs and streams in the Southern Nevada Region this spring and summer. The fish will come from NDOW hatcheries in other regions of the state and from private out-of-state hatcheries. LAKE MEAD — Fishing should continue to be very good for striped bass and channel catfish through summer despite the lake’s record-low water level. Although fishing should be fair for largemouth bass, they have been adversely affected by the water level. LAKE MOHAVE — The outlook for Lake Mohave is excellent. The water level has been relatively stable and anglers should find good fishing for striped bass, including fairly large numbers of fish around 1 pound. Boaters should have good success by drifting baits such as anchovies and squid. EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR — Located east of Pioche in Spring Valley State Park, this is a popular family getaway from spring through summer. The trout fishing is consistently good, the camping facilities are first-class and the daytime temperatures are pleasant. Heavy rains in early 2005 should mean a full reservoir through at least mid-summer. ECHO CANYON RESERVOIR — The reservoir is located in Echo Canyon State Park, east of Pioche. There is an nice campground in the park. For the first time in many years, the reservoir was almost full heading into spring. Depending on weather conditions, this might continue until mid-summer. Because of the high lake levels, angler access should be much better than average this spring. Rainbow trout fishing is expected to be good through the spring and early summer months thanks to plants. Plans call for 10,000 rainbows to be planted this spring. URBAN PARK PONDS — Ponds at Floyd Lamb State Park, Lorenzi Park and Sunset Park in Las Vegas, Veterans Memorial Park in Boulder City and Hafen Park Pond in Mesquite will be stocked monthly from mid-April through summer with channel catfish and rainbow trout in the winter.MS Las Vegas Real Estate reminds you once again that Las Vegas is a real city with outdoor recreation that takes you as far away from casinos as you want to be.
