Yuma Area Ponds
 

The Department has stepped up efforts to encourage the recruitment of new anglers, and retain existing ones. To this end, the Department has increased stocking efforts in a few ponds in the Yuma area. Those ponds are the Yuma West Wetlands Pond, located in Yuma’s West Wetlands Park, Council Park Pond, located in Somerton’s Council Park and Redondo and Fortuna ponds, located about 10 miles northeast of Yuma. Access to Redondo Pond was recently improved with the addition of an ADA compliant fishing pier, and the thick cattail growth was removed at Fortuna Pond, improving shoreline access. All of these waters receive multiple stockings of rainbow trout in the winter months and channel catfish stockings in the spring and fall, depending on budgets. If funding is available, we hope to continue regular stockings into these ponds and perhaps add additional waters to our stocking schedule. These ponds provide an ideal place to take the family for shoreline fishing. Special regulations on fish limits are in effect for these waters, so be sure to consult the Fishing Regulations booklet or check the signs at the ponds before you start fishing.
