Martinez Lake In Arizona
Boating, camping and fishing.
A small backwater off the Colorado River on the Arizona-California border, north of Yuma AZ, Martinez Lake is easily accessed via the Imperial Dam Road west off US Highway 95. The lake provides boating access to this section of the Colorado River. The lake is a 600-acre impoundment off the Colorado River, which meanders its way south to drain into the ocean. 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.
