This was filmed in the late 1930’s and early 1940’s in the Lake Havasu area. It has scenes of Havasu Landing in it’s early development and what fishing was like when the trees and brush were still protruding from the water. The branches of the trees were still above the water until the 1960’s and the fishing was excellent. We were still fishing in the trees while the divers with a barge from Lake Havasu City were in the lake cutting the trees off underwater. It was really sad to see them go.
The video ends with a short segment showing a couple of scenes in the Needles area and the return to Los Angeles on Route 66.
About 2 minutes of the video are a duplication of scenes posted by Catherine Gardner in her video Havasu Home Movies which are from our family 8mm film..
The video was converted from 8mm film to VHS in 1990 and now to MP4. There was no audio so music was added. All of the music was purchased by me, is not posted for monetary gain, and no copyright infringement is intended.

The Desert Storm & Poker Run are held annually every spring in Lake Havasu City. This is 2019’s showing with some serious boat builds with insane horse power and fabrication trends. 30 foot million dollar monster boats that reach insane speeds on the water at sub-200mph. This is just one of many awesome things that occur annually in this town.

Flying over The London Bridge Channel, Sand Bar, and Open Lake made for some epic drone shots despite the slow moving party on fourth of July weekend. After flying over the border in El Paso I had to say something about why families are being broken up on the Border.
Walking and Talking on the Fourth of July in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. Possibly the Largest Independence Day Party on the planet? Get Youtube advice from @mrfitnessboston See @therealjessicajan on the Channel. Go to the Nautical Resorts Pool, out on Lake Havasu up the Gorge on the Colorado River, see bits and pieces from the party at BJ’s. Thanks for Watching Video Rating: / 5
