Fishing Report: Lake Havasu
Lake Havasu fishing report
Striper fishing is good near schools of shad. Majority of shad have been found from the mouth of the Bill Williams north towards Havasu Springs.
Productive striper lures have been white 3/4 & 1-ounce Rat-L-Traps, Sassy shad swimbaits rigged on a 3/8- to 3/4-ounce jighead used by trolling or casting near shad schools
during low light hours.
Early morning hours have been best.
Live shad have been producing plenty of quality-sized stripers of more than 3 pounds. Use a 4-foot throw net (the largest legal size) or a snag hook to catch shad to use as live bait.
Largemouth and smallmouth bass are hitting good on squarebill cranks in shad or craw colors. These have been working good in shallow coves with rock or gravel shorelines.
