We are pleased to announce the 1st Annual Bass Pro Shops Lake Havasu Open and Fishing Festival. Taking place at Windsor State Park Lot #4 May 4th, 5th, and 6th, the Open will be a fun and festive weekend full of clinics, demos, test ride & drives, kids’ fishing derby, kids’ activities, and a tournament unlike Havasu has ever seen.
You would never buy a car without a test drive first, right? When you buy a boat, you rarely get an opportunity to test drive it first. Well, that changes now. Visit us at Lake Havasu during our Lake Havasu Open and Fishing Festival for FREE ride and drive demos of our full line of Tracker Marine boats and our Arctic Cat ATVs and UTVs May 4th and 5th from 9am-6pm and May 6th from 9am-3pm.
Bass Pro Shops is all about families and introducing youth to the outdoors and maintaining that connection for life. So we are excited to be holding a Kid’s Fishing Derby just for those 5-15 years old May 6th from 8am-12noon. This is for every level of young angler- from beginners to those with years of experience. The first 200 participants receive souvenirs. Prizes will be awarded for a variety of categories for different age groups. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and must bring their own equipment.
Make sure and walk around the lot to test out and learn about products from vendors, exhibitors, and demonstrations. We aim to make this truly interactive- allowing you to learn through experiencing these products and services first hand.
And don’t forget about the Tournament itself. May 5th and 6th, professional anglers and enthusiasts alike will pack the lake full of boats competing for a ton of great prizes and, oh yeah, a boat. That’s right. A fully rigged Nitro Z7 with a Mercury outboard. The Top 10% finishers in the tournament will be eligible to win the Z7.
