If you haven’t been to Havasu here is a brief photographic tour.
Lake Havasu is located on the Colorado River where the Mojave Desert meets the Sonoran Desert. California is located on the western shoreline, Lake Havasu City, and Arizona is on the eastern shores.
Havasu consists of the central lake located above Parker Dam to the south and the Colorado River entering from the north.
Havasu competitors typically focus on largemouth bass to anchor winning tournament bags, but it has been proven that you can win major events with nothing but smallmouth bass.
As rugged as the desert environment is, it’s also fragile.
Flood a desert valley and the submerged cover elements will soon fade away. Havasu has responded exceptionally to this condition and has implemented a world-class habitat program.

Havasu is extremely popular for a variety water sports. During Spring Break Havasu becomes packed with every type of boater including those that party way too much while operating their vessels, be careful.
At the right time of year if you push into Havasu “Back Water” you might find a big bite,…
…or maybe just a wild Burro. Burros were originally brought to the desert by minors. When mining ceased the minors let them go. These sturdy, adaptable animals learned to not only survive but flourish in this harsh environment.
Relocated from England block by block the London Bridge was purchased and reassembled in Lake Havasu City by Robert P. McCulloch. The bridge was rebuilt over land between Pittsburgh Point and the city.
Afterward, the Bridgewater Channel was created under the bridge building a waterway and turning the peninsula into an island. Initially thought to be a crazy idea, but as it turned this project has been attributed to a significant boom of new land buyers.
If you ever get the opportunity to visit Lake Havasu, do it. From the adventure up the river, the main lake, and the southern portion this venue is a dynamic fishery. You will have an opportunity to catch big stripers, toad largemouth, hard fighting stout smallmouth, and even world record size blue gill.
Good luck to all the competitors!
