Imperial Reservoir Area: Mittry Lake Wildlife Area

Description:

Mittry Lake Wildlife Area lies in and adjacent to the floodplain of the Colorado River between Laguna and Imperial Dams. Mittry Lake covers approximately 750 acres, with much of the shoreline covered with cattails and bullrush. Mittry Lake has recently undergone rehabilitation work including marsh dredging, revegetation and fish habitat improvement, making it an ideal location for small game hunting and sportfishing. Major species for small game hunting include waterfowl, doves, quail, rabbit and raccoon. Major species of fish in the lake include largemouth bass, channel catfish, flathead catfish, crappie, and bluegill. There are no camping facilities and the area is for day use only. However there is a 3-lane boat launch ramp for motorized boating on the lake. The area is also very popular for nature study and birdwatching. More information.
