Fishing Report: Lake Havasu
Lake level: 447.65 feet
Striper fishing is good if you can locate the schools of shad around the island where stripers are boiling. The chalk cliffs and north of Windsor Beach State Park towards the mouth of the river have been good areas.
Top-water Storm Chug Bugs & pearl sassy shads rigged on 3/8 to 1/2 oz leadheads have been producing quality fish around sunup and sundown when cast offshore or trolled near shad schools.
Smallmouth bass are hitting good on top-water poppers and small white or shad colored jerkbaits like the Pointer 78 and 100.
Deep diving crawdad colored crankbaits (8-15 feet) working good around rocks or gravel/rocky shorlines where smallies are hunting crawdads.
Late season catfish bite is still good using live shad or bluegill for flathead cats. Channel cats biting good on sardines, mackerel or shrimp.
