Located along the Colorado River on the border between California and Arizona upstream from Parker Dam is Lake Havasu. Along the lake’s eastern shore sits Lake Havasu City, home of the relocated London Bridge. Lake Havasu is a popular fishing and boating destination and hosts many angling tournaments. For bass anglers this is a unique opportunity to fish both the main lake and the river while targeting an equal mix of largemouth and smallmouth bass. Sounds like fun stuff for sure. There is an open seat in my boat so hop in and let’s go take a look!!!
