Lake Havasu

Lake Havasu is a large reservoir behind Parker Dam on the Colorado River, on the border between California and Arizona. Lake Havasu City sits on the lake's eastern shore. The lake has a capacity of 648000acre.ft. The concrete arch dam was built by the United States Bureau of Reclamation between 1934 and 1938. The lake's primary purpose is to store water for pumping into two aqueducts. Prior to the dam construction, the area was home to the Mohave Indians. In the early 1800s it was frequented by beaver trappers. Spaniards also began to mine the area along the river.Fauna Largemouth bass Smallmouth bass Striped bass Carp Catfish (Channel) Catfish (Flathead) Crappie Razorback sucker Redear Sunfish Sunfish (Cetrarchidae) Turtles
