Fishing at Lake Mead: Striped Bass, Catfish, and Bluegills

There’s no other form of fishing that’s quite as satisfying as that done from the comfort and convenience of a rented houseboat. Houseboat fishing lacks the long trek down to the water, there are no crowds of fishermen with which to contend, and best of all, you can wake in the early morning hours, yawn, stretch, and start fishing first on your time. You don’t even have to the leave the comfort of your deck to reel in the generous striped bass, catfish and bluegills that Lake Mead provides.

At Forever Houseboats, we enjoy introducing novices to the joys of a rented houseboat vacation. And for those who love to fish, it’s the perfect opportunity to experience the water without all the hassle that comes with that early morning trek down to the shore. Simply navigate your rented houseboat to the position you desire and cast a line. We even provide the gas barbecue grill so you can fry up your fish afterwards.
