Lower Colorado River Fishing
The Lower Colorado River in Yuma AZ is a fishermens paradise. Anglers will find almost 75 Miles of navigable river between the Imperial Dam and the Blythe California diversion dam (Palo Verde Dam). With extensive backwaters and lakes created by the building of the Imperial Dam, fishermen have a good chance of finding a honey-hole that hasnt been fished in ages!
The Lower Colorado river is chocked full of multiple species, with some of the most popular being largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, stripers, crappie, bluegill, catfish and monster flatheads. 74 lbs is the current flathead record for the area.
Catering to fishermen from around the country, the Fisher’s Landing property boasts free launch ramps, fuel dock and fuel island, bait and tackle, ice, beverages and so much more!
The river is also host to many fishing tournaments. During Spring and Summer, having 2 or 3 different clubs & organization launching on the same day is not uncommon.
Even if your just a spectator, you can still participate by attending one of the catch and release weigh-ins. Fishers Landing also hosts the Slim Evans Memorial Catfish Derby, as well as the Jackpot Fishing Tournament.
