Did some searching but didn't turn over anything super useful, unless I didn't go back far enough. Who knows?

Anyway, anyone here ever go out on the water in the winter months? I'm curious how the water levels are around those months like November to January. Obviously it'll be cold as all hell, but I figured why not enjoy some water while the river is less populated.

I dig it. We're going out to Blythe for thanksgiving this year. I've just never heard anybody talking about winter trips so I've been curious about the water levels down there. I definitely will be out for a few riding/shooting trips throughout the winter since we got our house, why not throw a few trips to the sandbar in the mix?

As stated Parker works all year round, winter is also just about the only time I'll do Havasu now as well. Not sure about water levels anywhere below Parker in winter time

If the water is to low in Blythe on your thanksgiving trip come up to Parker for a day you can get the Parker experience without it being so crowded also the boat races are at blue water that weekend

Water temp is not bad through November, after that gets cold.
