  • Report: From AZGFD
    LAKE MOHAVE – The lake level today is currently 635.8 feet above msl. The fishing dock at Katherine's Landing produced some nice fish. The bluegill and largemouth bass/smallmouth bass bite has dropped off with the cold weather. There are reports of a few smallmouth bass being taken off the shelves in the coves above the power lines.

    The striper bite is reported to be OK near the dam and the Princess Cove area and a little bit better above the power lines. Find the shad and the stripers will be there. Submersible lights fished during the new moon are an effective way to catch stripers. Check the moon phases before you go – the last new moon was Dec. 11. Next new moon will be Jan. 9. Cut anchovies usually work the best for stripers.

    Biologists from both Arizona Game and Fish Department and Nevada Division of Wildlife with the help of volunteers, National Park Service, Arizona State Prison-Kingman Complex 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 so I can share your successes with others
