Yuma Community Fishing

“If people can’t get to the fish, we’ll bring the fish to the people.”

Fortuna Lake

More than 4 million Arizona residents live within a 20-minute drive of a stocked Community
Fishing Program lake. Close by and convenient, all the parks offer parking and other amenities to
make your fishing trip and park visit enjoyable.
Distinctive Community Fishing Program signs are posted at key locations at all participating waters,
uniquely identifying these fisheries from other waters. The signs also highlight the fishing license
requirements and bag limit regulations that apply to Community Fishing waters.
