Fishing the Colorado River below Glen Canyon Dam

Phoenix's urban fishing program exists within a broader sport fishing industry and community within Arizona. By the 1960s Arizona boosters boasted that Arizona was one of the U.S.'s top sport-fishing destinations despite its arid desert climate. In Northern Arizona, Glen Canyon Dam, completed in 1956, helped transform the states rivers. It changed the ecosystem of the Colorado River from a warm and silty habitat for native fish to a cold and clear habitat for sport fish like trout.
