The Colorado River from Lake Mohave to Parker Dam attracts many visitors to the area. Attractions include a variety of birds and animals, Indian petroglyphs, historical sites, parks and marinas, marshes, mountain peaks and canyons. Land along the river is both publicly and privately owned. Please do not trespass on private property. Contact the manager of the particular publicly owned riverfront area you plan to visit for permission or a reservation. Some portions of public lands are fragile riparian wildlife preserves which should not be disturbed. The courteous river boater should use riverbanks specifically designated for recreational purposes.
Fishing is very good on the river and in some backwater areas. We have Striped Bass, Large and Small Mouth Bass, Channel and Flathead Catfish, Crappie, Carp and during the cooler months, you might be lucky enough to catch a Rainbow Trout! Regulations and information are available from the below agencies.
