Bass & Striper Fishing at Lake Mead.
Largemouth bass populations have declined with the introduction of striped bass into Lake Mead. However, there is still plenty of action for both species. Stripers school, often in very large schools, and the fishing can be fast and furious when you locate one of these schools. They may be deep or cruising the surface chasing schools of shad. When stripers are shallow, any baitfish-imitating lure will catch them. If you find them deep, a spoon or cut bait will do the trick. Largemouth can be caught by most conventional methods, when you find an area that is not dominated by stripers.
