Fishing is a favorite activity for many Yuma Arizona residents and visitors. The Colorado River and the lakes fed by the river are where most of the fish are being caught. There are also several ponds as well as the many irrigation canals where anglers can ply the waters.
Anglers that are 14 years old or older will require a fishing licence. If you plan to fish the Colorado River waters from any sort of boat or float, or you fish from the California banks of the river, you will also need a Colorado River Stamp. Contact Arizona Game and Fish for more information.
