Fishing report for July 11

■ LAKE MEAD — Anglers have reported striper boils early in the morning and just before dark. Boil locations include Vegas Wash, 33 Hole, Crawdad Cove and the Boulder Beach area along the buoy line. Top-water lures such as the Zara Spook and pencil poppers can be effective bait choices. Keep an eye out for other boaters, and use care not to overrun the boil, because it will shut down. Catfish action has been good for anglers using anchovies or stink baits. A little chumming can help bring them in.

■ LAKE MOHAVE — Anglers have been catching stripers using various swim baits and anchovies fished in 40 to 50 feet of water. Catfish have been taking night crawlers out of Cottonwood Cove. At Willow Beach, anglers have been bringing in double-digit stripers, some reportedly as large as 18 pounds. These fish have been hitting on swim baits such as the AC Plug and Rago.
