Lake Havasu Information

Lake Havasu borders Arizona and California on the Colorado River in Mohave County, Arizona, and San Bernardino County, California. The Chemehuevi Indian Reservation runs along Lake Havasu’s entire California shoreline, and Lake Havasu City is on its Arizona border. The Colorado River feeds Lake Havasu. Parker Dam impounds Lake Havasu, and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation operates the dam.

The Metropolitan Water District owns and operates the 242-mile Colorado River Aqueduct, which stretches from Lake Havasu, Arizona, to its terminal reservoir at Lake Mathews near Riverside, California. The Lake Havasu Field Office of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management manages the public lands surrounding Lake Havasu in Arizona. 

Lake Havasu covers 19,300 acres with over 400 miles of shoreline, an average depth of 35 feet, and a maximum depth of 90 feet.  Lake Havasu is home to the famous London Bridge, which industrialist Robert P. McCulloch purchased from the U.K. in 1968. McCulloch established Lake Havasu City in 1964 as a recreational and retirement development. The Mohave and the Sonoran Deserts flank Lake Havasu. 

Lake Havasu supports diverse desert plant and wildlife with a variety of cacti. Steep reddish-brown cliffs, desert, gorges, and marshy grasslands frame Lake Havasu. The Chemehuevi Indians own the Havasu Landing Resort & Casino in Havasu Lake, California. Except for Havasu City and southern Havasu Lake, there is little development around Lake Havasu. 

Lake Havasu History

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation built the Parker Dam on Lake Havasu between 1934 and 1938. Seventy-three percent of the dam's structural height of 320 feet is below the original river bed, with only about 85 feet of the dam's structural height visible.

The Chemehuevis are the southernmost branch of the Southern Paiute people. The Chemehuevi lived in close conjunction with the Mohave people, usually, but not always, on friendly terms. These tribes ranged from the Colorado River to the San Bernardino Mountains, which were familiar hunting grounds with Chemehuevi landmark names. 

Evidence indicates that Native Americans inhabited the Colorado River Basin since One A.D. The Chemehuevis split from the Southern Paiutes in the Las Vegas area before the early 1800s. They ranged over the Mohave Desert by the mid-1800s. The Chemehuevis are linguistically related to the greater Uto-Aztecan language family, which includes languages spoken by peoples from the Great Basin of the Northwest U.S. south into Central Mexico. 

While the Civil War raged in the East, Immigrants discovered valuable mineral deposits and established mines in the West. After the town of Prescott developed as the capital of the new Arizona Territory in 1864, the need for mail service arose. The Indians had become aggressive and attacked mail carriers at random. Relationships between the Mohave and Chemehuevi deteriorated and escalated into war in 1867. In the meantime, the Colorado River’s resources had become a hotly debated topic. 

Settlers eventually depleted the Indian’s meat sources, which reduced them to working for wages for the new inhabitants. In 1870, the U.S. government relocated the Mohave to a reservation at Fort Mohave, which spans the borders of Arizona, California, and Nevada. The 1908 U.S. Supreme Court decision Winters v. United States recognized Indian water rights regardless of whether or not a tribe had used the water, with rights established at the time reservations were created. 

Delegates from the seven Colorado River Basin states met on November 9, 1922, in New Mexico to discuss, negotiate, and ultimately work out the Colorado River Compact. This compact apportioned Colorado River water between the Upper and Lower Basin States and is a defining document in Colorado River management. The delegates signed the compact on November 24, 1922, in Santa Fe, New Mexico. But, the contract promised the states more water than existed.

The Colorado River Compact came into play during the environmental movement in the 1970s, when the U.S. enacted1973 Endangered Species Act (ESA), which severely complicated Colorado River management with new criteria. The river’s power was harnessed to turn turbines and irrigate crops, and especially the cotton thirsty crops in Arizona. The ESA ensured that the Colorado River is a protected and preserved ecosystem and created a new conflict. 

The controversy of how to utilize the Colorado River’s water and protect its ecosystem remains today. Lake Havasu is in the Lower Colorado River Basin. It is home to over 56,000 people and a flourishing tourism industry that attracts over 835,000 visitors every year. The London Bridge is the most famous landmark in Lake Havasu City and one of the most visited historic sites in all of Arizona.

Fishing Lake Havasu

Predominant game species include largemouth, smallmouth, and striped bass, bluegill, carp, channel catfish and flathead catfish, black crappie, green and redear sunfish, tilapia, and rainbow trout. Roundtail chubs, bonytail chubs, and razorback suckers are protected species. Lake Havasu is a top fishing destination in the Southwest and hosts premier bass tournaments year-round. 

Arizona and California have reciprocal fishing licenses on Lake Havasu, and anglers can fish from a boat in the waters of both states except on California shores. Anglers need a California Fishing License to fish from the shore in California. Anglers also need a Colorado River Special Use Stamp when fishing from a boat on waters which form mutual boundaries between Arizona and California or Nevada. River stamps are required on some streams around Lake Havasu. 

Lake Havasu bass fishing is considered the best in the Southwest because of its warm water. The air temperature ranges from 75 to 108 degrees year-round. Lake Havasu’s rock layers hold pockets in between the layers, and are perfect for catching bass near Lake Havasu’s shoreline. Lake Havasu’s water begins as precipitation at the top of the Central Rocky Mountains. It is fresh, clean water, which creates an outstanding fishery. 

Lake Havasu fishing guides will say every cove in Lake Havasu cove potentially holds a big bass. Anglers at Lake Havasu do have to compete with pleasure boaters for quiet fishing areas. The lake can become dangerously windy too. Wind warning lights and alarms placed strategically around Lake Havasu give anglers the chance to seek cover before the fast oncoming wind creates unsafe boating and fishing conditions.. Fishing from a boat is more productive than shore fishing. Anglers can explore quite a few fishing hot spots on Lake Havasu.

Lake Havasu Upper River 

Catfish Bay is a sheltered bay with reeds and tulles to the north side and shallow rocky points to the south, just north of where the Colorado River drains into the main lake. Find largemouth in and around the tulles and smallmouth around rocky points and cuts. Structures: Reeds, tulles, points, cuts, and boulders. Best for: Largemouth and smallmouth bass, and bluegill.

Jops Harbor is a sheltered bay to the north end of the lake. It has reeds and tulles and a significant amount of submerged vegetation and grass in the summer and several narrow points. It is great for bed fishing in the spring. Structures: Reeds, tulles, points, cuts, and boulders. Best for: Largemouth, smallmouth bass, bluegill, catfish, and tilapia.

Castle Rock Bay is tucked away, completely sheltered from the main river channel, and is surrounded by reeds and tulles. Structures: Reeds, tulles, points, cuts, and boulders. Best for: Largemouth, bluegill, catfish, and tilapia.

Blankenship Bend has a group of areas of fishing hot spots, and not a singular location. Fishing is more productive by focusing on the inner bend and in all the small washout coves that the river current creates. Or fish rocky bluff walls just off the main river channel. Find largemouth in and around the tulles and smallmouth along the rocky points and walls. Structures: Reeds, tulles, points, cuts, and boulders. Best species to target: Largemouth, bluegill, catfish, and tilapia. 

Mid-Lake Havasu

Successful Lake Havasu mid-lake anglers target artificial structures other than docks and marinas, like Christmas trees, Georgia cubes, and reef balls. Lake Havasu placed 10 Georgia cubes and 10 reef balls around the lake in 2019. Focus on other types of secondary cover where bass could hold in, like drop-offs, submerged grass, and washes or culverts. 

The Windsor Beach area is on the Arizona side of the lake and stretches along almost a mile and a half of shoreline. It has multiple fishing docks, marinas, sightseeing areas, and artificial structures. Structures: artificial structure, fishing docks, marinas, submerged grass, ledges, drop-offs, culverts, and points. Best for: Largemouth and smallmouth bass, bluegill, catfish, and tilapia.

Chalk Cliffs to Ski Cove Three: Schools of striped bass will suspend around the river channel ledge and multiple points in this area. Structures: Submerged river channel, ledges, points, sparse artificial structure. Best for: Largemouth, smallmouth, and striped bass, bluegill, and crappie.

The Ski Cove One to the Grass Island area features submerged grass that grows abundantly in the summer. Largemouth bass like the patches of submerged brush and timber, along with cuts and runoff channels.

In the backs of the pockets and coves, there are large sections of tulles and reeds. Because of the river current flowing straight into this area, fishing early mornings and late evenings are the most productive. Striped bass will hold over the main lake river channel drop-offs. Structures: Rocks, points, cuts, tulles, reeds, fishing docks, submerged grass, ledges, drop-offs, culverts, and points. Best for: Bluegill, largemouth, smallmouth, and striped bass, and catfish.

The Three Points to Teal Point stretch of Lake Havasu has lots of artificial structures, cuts, drop-offs, pockets, and washes and is rockier, which makes it excellent for smallmouth bass habitat. Sections of tulles and reeds are in the backs of the pockets and coves. Because of the river current flowing straight into this area, fishing early mornings and late evenings are the most productive. Structures: artificial structure, submerged grass, tulles, reeds, ledges, drop-offs, culverts, chunk rock, boulders, and points. Best for: Bluegill, largemouth, smallmouth, and striped bass, and catfish.

The Havasu Palms into Whipple Bay area sees less recreational boaters.

Structures: artificial structure, submerged grass, tulles and reeds, ledges, drop-offs, culverts, chunk rock, boulders, and points. Best for: Bluegill, largemouth, smallmouth, and striped bass, and catfish.

The Bass Isles to Powerline Cove has many options and structures to fish and is not often frequented by recreational boaters. Structures: artificial structure, submerged grass, tulles and reeds, ledges, drop-offs, culverts, chunk rock, boulders, and points. Best for: Bluegill, largemouth and striped bass, catfish, and tilapia. 

The Bill Williams River is about 25 miles south of Lake Havasu City. It offers solitude and drains into Lake Havasu.

Hiking Lake Havasu

Backpacking and hiking in the desert require precautionary preparations, which are essential to fully experience its nature. Hikers need to tell someone where they are going and when they plan on returning, and leave a copy of their itinerary in their vehicles for authorities to find in case of emergencies. Safety and conservation precautions when hiking in desert landscapes are:

Recommended to Wear

  • Bandana 
  • Comfortable hiking boots or sturdy shoes/sneakers
  • Gloves if hiking steep terrain
  • Hat
  • Sunglasses with a strap and polarized with UV protection
  • Sweatshirt or jacket for winter hikes or hikes to higher elevations
  • Watch for keeping track of daylight hours
  • Dress in layers, as temperatures are variable.

Recommended to Bring

  • Binoculars
  • Camera
  • Cell phone, although service may not be available in some areas. Turn on cell phones which may help authorities locate you in case of an emergency.
  • Compass
  • Day pack with padded shoulder straps
  • First aid kit: ace bandages, bandages, pain killers, mole skin, and surgical adhesive
  • Flashlight or headlight 
  • GPS unit 
  • Map

  • Sunscreen and lip balm
  • Toilet paper, tissue or paper towels, but please carry out
  • Walking stick 
  • Water/sports drink, two quarts per person for four hours of hiking. The desert’s dry air acts like a sponge, drawing the water out of you as you do not realize it. 
  • Whistle or noise-making device
