Lake Mohave is a reservoir formed by Davis Dam on the Colorado River, which defines the border between Nevada and Arizona in the United States. The lake lies at an elevation of 647 feet (197 m) near Laughlin, Nevada, Searchlight, Nevada, Cottonwood Cove, Nevada and Bullhead City, Arizona, about 67 miles (108 km) downstream from Hoover Dam. The lake and adjacent lands forming its shoreline are part of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area administered by the U.S. National Park Service. Lake Mohave encompasses 28,260 acres of water.
Water leaving Lake Mohave flows south into Laughlin and then Lake Havasu. Lake Havasu is more crowded and well-known than Lake Mohave, but Lake Mohave is a much larger, deeper, and cleaner lake than Lake Havasu. Lake Mohave is known for its sandy beaches and majestic views of mountains in both Nevada and Arizona.
Lake Mojave is very well known for its sports fishing. Many different species live and flourish in the lake including trophy size Striped Bass, Largemouth Bass, different Catfish species, sun fish and rainbow trout. As well, the lake offers a large variety of wildlife including but not limited to Big Horn Sheep, Wild Burros, and different large birds.
