There are also striped and largemouth bass, panfish, catfish and carp taken here. When fishing from a boat, make sure you have the proper Arizona Enhancement sticker on your CA fishing license. Be sure to visit the CDFW web site for complete regulations before heading out.

     The Topock Marsh area is excellent for catfish and crappie. A boat or float tube is recommended since there's not much shore fishing.
