Fish in the Desert – Lake Mead, Las Vegas, Nevada

Believe it or not – there are fish in the desert.

We interview Doug Nielsen, who is the Public Affairs Supervisor for the Nevada Department of Wildlife, and he explains that opportunities abound in the desert for individuals who would like to fish. Mr. Nielsen helps us understand why the carp are so plentiful at Lake Mead. The carp tend to disturb the plant-life in Lake Mead which can upset the nesting – however, the Nevada Department of Wildlife is currently monitoring the situation to understand the overall effect. We learn why the striped bass was introduced in the 1960’s – for game fishing!
