Lake Havasu sits on the border of California and Arizona. It is well-known for its recreational fishing and boating. It is reported to host a very long solo marathon swim attempt in its water later this summer.
Fishing tournaments are often held on the lake, where bass are the main catch, but white sturgeon were stocked in Lake Havasu in 1967 and 1968 from stock obtained from San Pablo Bay, California. Living sturgeon have not been recorded, but they may still exist along the southern end of Lake Havasu near Parker Dam.
