Largemouth bass fishing is expected to pick up

Topock Marsh - Topock, AZ (Mohave County)

by Arizona Game & Fish Department

 Largemouth bass fishing is expected to pick up as the bass are off the nests and have left the fry to forage for food. The North Dike boat ramp was dredged this spring, increasing boating access. Game and Fish biologists last surveyed the Marsh in February of 2022. They found that all present species with the exception of stripped bass were in good condition. Largemouth bass, channel catfish, and black crappie appeared to cover a wide range of sizes and appeared to be stable. Bluegill, redear, and green sunfish were all present in Topock Marsh, but typically make up less than 1% of the catch annually. You can access the Marsh by boat at North Dike, Catfish Paradise, and Five-Mile Landing. All three also provide plenty of area for shoreline fishing, too.
