Good fishing guide for Lake Mead - Las Vegas

Recommended Posts

Since there is no Nevada/Arizona board, I thought I would post this question here. Please move if appropriate.

Does anyone here have a name of a good fishing charter for Lake Mead? I have a work trip to Vegas and I wanted to try some bass fishing on Lake Mead. Thanks for the help.

caster - Sorry that it took a while to pipe in here but I had to look through a few places to find the guy's card.

JR's Guide Service

Jim Robinson Master Guide Capt. USCG

Las Vegas NV (702) 361-7039.

This guy was really good. Real easy going can handle all kinds of groups. My son and I arranged with a different guide who got double booked and he switched us to Jim. No complaints. Real tough day out on the lake. Nobody brought hardly anything back. Jim swithched spots many times and worked like the dickens trying to keep us on fish. then he slipped away from the group into a corner where we hit them one right after another. My son was on the back of the boat he was 20 years at the time. Jim was showing him all about the electronics and exactly what he was doing to get us fish. He kept telling me to let out more line or pull it up a bit. After awhile my son figured it out and he was giving me the instructions. We switch spots and I got the training.Man I learned a ton.

Jim was real good at figuring out our abilities and allowed us to do more and more as we demonstrated our abilities.

Any way the best attributes for a guide were there. He was real nice to be with and showed us everything he was doing. He taught us to fish. If I had a boat down there I could now go out on my own and have a fightig chance.

Much better money spent then gambling at about the same price. I'll never go to Vegas again without a day on this lake planned in.

He has all the equipment and will pick you up. We had a ride so he met us at a bait shop that my wifes uncle who we were staying with knew of at 4:00 am. We fished till at least 3:00pm. He provided pop. but you needed to bring your own lunch. He also cleaned and packaged the few we did keep. And gave us a ride to a better meeting spot to get picked up.

This was last year in hot July.

Definitly would use Jim over and Over.

JR is good. He'll put you on some fish. He runs a center console boat. He is more of a striper guide.

If you want a better largemouth guide, try Vern Price at 702-896-1198. Vern is a tournament bass guy + guide. He actually operates the Angler's Choice circuit. Vern will take you out in a bass boat (which may be better if you only have 2 people).

Good luck.

The bass are in their full spawn now. Meade tourney tomorrow.

(Information from good friend in Henderson, NV)

Good luck!

Oh go Striper fishing. If you haven't done it before. Heck you can get Bass here. Meade is a great lake for Striper. Or check with your guide if one isn't working maybe you can switch up. Arrange that in advance cause equipment will be different. Probably would be dependent on the size of the party.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.

      The creek is still very high and dirty. Prespawn smallies don't seem to mind😁 Morning bite has been very consistent this last week.

      Any new reports from this past weekend?  Heading up Thursday for a long Memorial Day weekend. Looking for a place to start. Going out of Bayview RV resort. First year fishing vermilion.

      Looks like your neighbors old pontoon is in some trouble, only a couple inches of the motor is above the water.

      Nice fish, but sad for the property owners.

      On the south end...  A great week of walleye fishing with good numbers of fish and some big walleyes and pike caught as well. Most anglers are finding walleyes vertical jigging.  A jig and emerald shiner or fathead did the trick.  With the naturally "stained" waters of LOW, gold, glow, pink, orange, chartreuse or a combo of these colors works well. Some anglers catching good numbers of walleyes trolling crankbaits over shallow sand, 5 - 12' of water.  Regardless of what technique, a lot of good fish on shallow sand this week. Walleyes are being caught in 3 - 31 feet of water.  Some walleyes are still spawning while others are well past that point.  Different things are happening depending upon what part of the lake, bay or river you are fishing.  A mixed bag for walleye anglers including walleyes, sauger, pike, perch, and sturgeon.   On the Rainy River...   The river has a lot of current with the dam wide open and high water levels.    Typical spots in the main channel are still tough to fish due to high current.  Finding current breaks adjacent to shorelines or the mouth of bays has been productive for those fishing the river.  Once you find fish, there are normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig continues.  Fish are being found in various depths from 5' -  30'.  Shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats are producing fish. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  Trolling crankbaits over 5' - 12' over shallow flats or sand has been productive. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      We will be up for our yearly trip June 4-11.  Just seeing if it's the usual baits so far fishing.  Anyone bobber fishing?  Lindy rig?  I'm assuming the water is told cold at this point for Leeches. Thank fellas.

      I spent last week on Kabetogama and the conditions are hard to believe. Water keeps rising. The forecast was for another foot rise. We stay at Northern Lights Resort and they went over and above for the guests. Built bridges to the floating docks! Fishing was amazing! Hard to catch small enough fish to keep! People up there are battling to protect and save what they can.

      I'm not getting any good reports on the lake conditions there. Friends on Ash River have water in their cabin. Hope all losses are at a minimum.🙏
