We did Yuma (Martinez) last year for Labor Day and loved it.  There was probably close to 500+ boats on the water/sandbars but the water was still better than Parker with just a couple boats.

We enjoyed it so much we went back again two weeks later.

I'm looking forward to making several trips to the lower river this year.  :thumbup:

The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

martinez was fun but not my favorite place. the cops screwed with us a lot that weekend and the channel in and out got way to crowded when it was time to come in. so i waited till dark and i had to walk my boat back to the marina cause it kept running into sand bars.

great times. but i will most likely be in Havasu on memorial

aquaholic i like how you say it kept running into sand bars,did you have it on auto pilot?you gotta know that part of the river,most of the time hugging the tolees is the best way to get up and down river. i love that place.i dont drink so when i get hasseled i like to give them a hard time.

i just started going there last year.. cheaper then Lake Havasu City, the casino has a bomb breakfast, drinks are cheap, and you can drive a golf cart everywhere... its awesome.. plus the river isnt far from it.. so i dont have to fight with the choppy water too much

ya everyone says havasu has huge chop. well martinez is the only place that i have gotten all 22 feet of my boat out of the water. Trying to hug the toolies with 15 boats around you trying to do the same thing was a pain in the ass.

My fav trip so far was boating from mcintyre down to martinez and back in one day. that was awesome. And shows i know a little bit about reading the lower river. been going there forever. It was just real shallow once the sun went down in martinez. but the bars absolutely rock!!! i was just always checking my six for cops. I did not drink on the water the whole weekend when i was down there so i had nothing to be worried about but they still seem to kill a good time just by lurking around. Oh and officer Carver is my old gunnery seargent when i was in the marines. LOL... small world

so if you ever get poped down there drop my name. lol might get you out of trouble might get you in more. its a crap shoot

i dunno if its so much the big boats than the breeze that kicks up in the afternoon.  once u start to feel a breeze expect the whole lake to turn horrible.

BTW, what is your full name?

Ya know, I don't drink when piloting because it kills my fun having the worry.. the past weekend in parker was awesome with no cops, I tied the boat in my slip, hit the Cantina for three beers and the woman got done with her margarita bucket and said there was a surprise at the dam after a boat ride... I had a smile bouncin off rev limiter all the way there and I knew there was no po-po.. off topic, yes, but sure was a worthwhile ride(s)!!
