Lake Havasu is a year-round angler’s paradise. Known for its large fish that are quick to bite, it’s no wonder that Fish & Game named Lake Havasu one of the top 100 places to fish in the U.S. and Bassmaster rated it one of the 100 Best Bass Lakes. The lake is home to 8 species of fish: largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, striped bass, bluegill, redear sunfish, channel catfish, crappies and flathead catfish. Come see for yourself what makes Lake Havasu a top fishing destination in the Southwest.
