SoCal Jet Boats
'One Hot Summer Weekend' Event
Our Annual 'One Hot Summer Weekend' event is coming up this weekend! Since the Avi is still not permitting events due to COVID protocols, we will be hanging out once again up at Back Bay which is located in Laughlin Marina just north of Big Bend State Park.

We want to remind and reiterate  to everyone that the area in Laughlin Marina is a strictly enforced no wake zone. This area is a wildlife preserve and there is signs marking areas where there is no motorized boats allowed. All laws of the waterway are strictly enforced - including drinking and driving.

A map of where we will be in Back Bay can be found below.

Launch Ramp Information

Big Bend State Park: Launch Fee is $25 ($20 for NV Residents). It's been stated that they have been filling up and restricting access once full so if you are using this park to launch from, I suggest you get there early. If you get there before the attendant is in the booth, please be honorable and use the envelope to drop your launch fee at the booth.

Lazy Harrys: Launch is free, but parking is VERY limited. If the water level is low, you probably wont be able to exit the channel until the water level comes up. The restaurant still remains closed at this time for renovations.

Rotary Park: Launch fee is $25, ample parking.

Avi Resort & Casino: Launch is free for hotel guests. Also, the beach is still roped off from parking your boat on the beach. So if you launch there, be aware there is no where to comfortably park your boat while you go park your truck. They do not allow any boats at all to enter their cove.

Riverside Casino / Laughlin Public Ramp: Launch is free, decent ramp, but you are launching into current and dealing with the PWC traffic near the casinos.

Bayshore Inn: Launch is free for hotel guests. Launches right into back bay.

Laughlin Marina : There is a launch ramp at Laughlin Marina. A few people were able to launch there for our May event. I do not have any information at this time if they will allow anyone to launch there for this upcoming event.

***Be aware, like any section of the river, there are underwater hazards along this stretch of river. We are not responsible if you damage your boat hitting rock or sand bars, logs, etc. The water levels fluctuate on the river, so something that might be visible in the morning, might be just under the surface in the evening. If you are unfamiliar with the area, ask someone for advice or follow another experienced boater.

Water Release Schedule

Davis Dam Projected Water Release Schedule can be found here:

This schedule is updated daily and only shows the next 5 days release schedule. The times are based on Mountain Standard Times and are subject to change at any time. Releases listed on the schedules are only estimates and can vary from the values listed. Boaters should exercise caution while navigating along the river.

Did Avi open their inlet to river access? We rented a house by Crazy Larry's & I had enough gas to get to Avi and refuel. They had it roped off because of Covid. That was a surprise and had to get fuel brought to us half way back....after midnight. You might check with them to see if they are open to the river yet. Have fun either way.

For anyone interested, Laughlin Marina (the big building with the blue roof) is opening up their launch ramp to use this weekend. The facility itself is closed for business, but the ramp will be available this weekend. It's $20/day and is decent when the water levels are low. They just said the weeds in the water might be a bit excessive when the water is low. It's a short idle from this ramp to the area where we will be in Bay Bay.
