Lake Havasu is a reservoir that is 45 miles long located along the Colorado River. It is nestled on the border between California and Arizona. People travel to Lake Havasu from all around the country for house boating, jet skiing, water skiing, sailing, fishing, and many other recreational activities. The terrain is very rugged, so much of the shoreline is not accessable from shore. It’s like a small resort town lined with a casino, restaurants, campgrounds, and RV Resorts. Lake Havasu is a lake that can be fished year round for Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Striped Bass, Crappie, Catfish, Bluegill, and Redear Sunfish. They completed the construction of the dam on this lake in 1938. This lake is owned and managed by the Bureau of Reclamation.
