Fishing at Lake Havasu, CA and AZ About Lake Havasu 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.

Fish Species at Lake Havasu Largemouth Bass Smallmouth Bass Striped Bass Crappie Catfish Bluegill Redear Sunfish Largemouth Bass Largemouth bass can be found around the boat docks, around submerged structures, in and around submerged vegetation, and off the points. Smallmouth Bass Smallmouth bass are found around the deeper canyon areas, around rocky points, and at Parker Strip below the dam. Other great fishing spots are found at Mesquite Cove, Take-Off Point, Havasu Springs, as well as up in the Topock Gorge. Striped Bass The main channel of the lake up to Mohave Rock, in the Windsor Basin, Havasu Springs, Parker Dam, and on the island at Site Six, you can usually run into striped bass. Catfish Catfish can be found in the coves and the rocks. Chicken livers, sardines, clams, catfish bait, and mini crawlers will do the trick. Panfish Bluegill, Crappie, and Sunfish can be caught around the docks, rocky areas, weeds, and submerged vegetation, as well as around under water structures using worms, crickets, live minnows, jigs, fly’s, small soft plastics, and small spinners and spinnerbaits will work best.
