LAKE MEAD - Nevada Division of Wildlife (NDOW) Creel Census clerks report that shore fishing success dropped off from the previous week. The number of anglers fishing from the shore declined as well. Shore anglers might consider fishing the area around Hemenway Harbor prior to the mid-morning heat, as anglers have reported greater success. Boaters however are still finding good success for stripers by down rigging from 60 - 80 feet. Boaters are also landing stripers by fishing the shad boils in open water, about 200 feet from shore. NDOW urges caution for anglers using the road to Boxcar Cove. Drifting sands has made the road difficult for vehicles that are not four-wheel drive.
