Largemouth Bass in the Colorado River

We’re happy to let our readers know that this year, the river has recently been experiencing an influx of one popular fish. As this article published by The Mohave Valley Daily News discusses, numbers of largemouth bass that have been spotted are much higher than usual.

The wide expanse of the Colorado River is home to some of the country’s strongest populations of beautiful rainbow trout and striped bass. Here at Marble Canyon Outfitters, we take great pride in offering some of the area’s best fly fishing experiences on this major American waterway.

Largemouth bass catches from this stretch of the Colorado River have typically ranged from just under two pounds up to a little more than three and a half pounds. In the right areas, largemouth bass are often larger than the average striped bass that an angler can bring in.

Fishermen interviewed for the above story did mention how much of their bait was being taken up by smaller fish, which they often had to send back into the river. However, the activity of the fish inhabiting the stretches of the Colorado River has been encouraging to everyone visiting this region of the country. Anchovies make good live bait, but for those anglers interested in artificial lures, spinner baits had shown some good effectiveness in picking up bass.

Still, fishermen visiting the area should remember that, although the bass populations may be better in some areas, that doesn’t mean that you’ll be catching fish much faster. Patience is a virtue, especially when it comes to fly fishing, but a few hours spent angling for a catch will often net an experienced fisherman a sizable meal.

Come on down to Marble Canyon Outfitters for a guided fly fishing experience where you’re assured of reeling in a decent catch. A wide selection of trout, bass and more can be yours when you schedule a trip to Marble Canyon, AZ.
