Question by bobchii: Can anyone give me an address or an exact location to see the carp in Lake Mead in Nevada?
I know the carp are in Lake Mead, but there are so many different sites at lake mead I don’t know which one exactly has the fish. I have seen youtube videos of tons of fish/carp coming to the surface but no videos say how to get there. I have gone to the national parks website for lake mead and it does not mention where to go. can anyone get me an address or exact location of the carp. I need it for this upcoming weekend. Thank you

The fish go where they want, but carp like to eat what people throw in (like popcorn) and the Marina’s have food stands so that is where you might find the carp. They normally are at the bottom of the lake unless people are throwing in food.

  1. One time I was at hoover dam and people were looking over on the Lake Mead side NV, so I joined in. There they were, a large massive group of Carp! All wanting the popcorn being thrown in. Big Mouths! Lake Mead is low tide now.

  2. Oooh is that what type of fish they are???? LOL They look like catfish.

    I know they are all over the dock at the Lake Mead Marina, I actually recently took some pictures….but you’re not allowed to fish in that area. If you do want to see them and possibly rent a boat or get more info on where you CAN fish, check out this site:

    This site tells you more about the Marina’s specific location…it doesn’t have an actual address, and there are multiple ways to get there but the best way is to head towards the Hoover Dam!

    Hope I helped! Its a nice area, definitely worth a drive in..be prepared to pay a fee!
