John Martin Reservoir is one of the largest bodies of water in southeastern Colorado, USA, offering a variety of fish species such as walleye, crappie, catfish, and bass. The lake is surrounded by a state park, which offers camping, hiking, and wildlife viewing. Anglers looking for success should try to fish during the cooler months of fall, winter, and early spring, using jigs and live bait. Summer can be productive for catfish and carp, but the high temperatures can make fishing challenging. The best time to visit is in spring or fall, with average temperatures ranging from 40-70°F.
