Bass Fishing at Martinez Lake, AZ.

If you like to fish current or venture into backwaters to find bass, Martinez Lake is your kind of place. The lake is a flooded area on the Arizona side of the Colorado River. Some bass are caught in the lake, but the vast majority of bass anglers venture up river from the lake itself to find bass in vegetation along the river banks. Use heavy line and prepare for a battle if you hook one of the bigger fish that live in this fast-moving current. They are strong and want to let you know it, once hooked.
