The Topock Gorge on the Colorado River meanders majestically through the Havasu National Wildlife Refuge between Laughlin, Nevada and Lake Havasu, Arizona.Fish Topock Gorge for Striped Bass, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Trout, Bluegill, Redear, and Catfish.

While the Havasu National Wildlife refuge protects 30 miles of the Colorado River, 20 remarkable miles of that flow through one of the few natural stretches remaining of the lower Colorado: Topock Gorge.

The gorge has high rocky cliffs on both sides with interesting formations, including many natural arches. This stretch of the river is a native riparian area with Fremont cottonwood and Gooding’s willow and mesquite, which support a variety of wildlife. It is especially a birders’ paradise, with more than 300 species either making homes here or using it regularly when when migrating.
