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. Our Mothers Day event was here and was great success.

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.

Event Thread on the SCJB Forum: http://www.socaljetboats.com/events/socal-jet-boats-'one-hot-summer-weekend'-august-21st-2021/

Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/521046305917583

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 ONLY - not open to the public. 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.

***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:
https://www.usbr.gov/lc/region/g4000/hourly/DavisParkerSchedules.pdf
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.

Yes, parking lot is where that pin is. It does fill up early. The pits are in the parking lot on the corner of the marina and that waterway that goes to the left at the bottom. Between the pits and the spectator parking is a long sandy beach for everyone to hang out and spectate. You can bring outside food and beverages. No outside alcohol. There is food vendors and a beer garden. You can bring chairs and canopies, but again, the beach fills up early.

We will have a 10x20 canopy on the beach for SCJB peeps to use freely. Also we will have a 10x20 canopy next to our vendor booth with bar top tables and chairs for people to hang out.

Here is a map of the river between the Big River Community Park (Circled in RED) and the Bluewater Damp (Circled in BLUE)
There are a few sand bars circled in ORANGE (water level permitting) that people hang out at, but mostly everyone heads up to "Pee Pee Cove" which is appropriately circled in YELLOW.
There are several rock bars and shallow areas in Big River (no different than any other section of the river). Please use caution and follow someone if you aren't familiar with the area.

Here is a map of the town of Big River. Circled in RED is the Big River Community Park. The entrance is down the hill from the intersection of Del Rey Drive and Rio Mesa Drive.

Here is a Google Map Pin Drop if you need specific directions directly to the ramp area.

https://maps.app.goo.gl/x5zJfoh9y43UTWaU8

Circled in YELLOW is the ramp most people use in the park. Parking is limited so please be mindful of others and don't take up a ton of room.

Circled in BLUE is Dumas Walkers Bar & Grill. They have food, drinks, and Karaoke. It's where most people will be hanging out in the evenings. Reminder: Tribal police heavily patrols this area and have a zero tolerance for drinking and driving.

We are so excited to be going back to Big River in Parker, Arizona! We did events for several years on that stretch of the river. The popular SoCal Jet Boats Event named "One Hot Summer Weekend" in August used to be called "The Gord Trip" and took place at Big River. A forum member named "Farmer Gord" used to make an annual trip from his cattle farm in Alberta, Canada down to Southern California to enjoy the Colorado River, thus the name of the event. As the number of event attendees grew, we opted to move this event to the Avi where it continues to be a successful event. Check our event schedule for information regarding that upcoming event.

This year we are adding a new stop to our annual Summer Tour - Big River, CA. The date is July 24th and like past events, the Big River Community Park will be where the majority of people will launch from. The launch ramp is a bit tough as it is directly in the current of the river. If you see someone struggling, please lend a hand. Big River has graciously reduced the launch fee from $25 to $20 for all SoCal Jet Boats members who are going to be launching at the Community Park. The park has been fighting financial difficulties with the CRIT shutdown of the river due to COVID and increasing costs of operations. Brittney and I encourage everyone to donate to the park if possible. We take pride in supporting those who support us. Let's make sure this community stays open and helps take care of each other so we can continue doing what we all love, boating! 

The Park has been an important part of the community and has been the site for many weddings, celebrations of life, BBQs, parties and events since 1975! We look forward to having more events here.

Like previous years, we will hang out at the community park for a bit, then make stops at the sand bars up river (water levels permitting) then ultimately spend the day up at "Pee Pee Cove", which is on the CA side of the river, just below the Bluewater Dam.

For those of you who have been around longer, but haven't been to Big River in awhile, unfortunately the Big River Inn and Catfish Cantina are no longer open. The Local Bar and Restaurant Dumas Walker is still open and if you are up for some Karaoke, lets see what you got! This will be a great spot for everyone to hang out in the evening.

All waterway and on-road laws will be enforced. Be aware that the CRIT police patrol the area. Do not drink and drive.

Here is a map of where the Community Park is, where we will be!

We look forward to seeing you all there!

SoCal Jet Boats returns to Big River on July 24th, 2021 after 7 long years! Some of our best times and greatest memories of the earlier years were held on this stretch of river. Launch at the Big River Community Beach or other local RV parks. Local bar/restaurant is Dumas Walkers where everyone hangs out in the evenings.

Fair Warning: Local authorities (tribal) are very strict on drinking and driving. Be sober or don't drive!

Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/314072716941523/

This stretch of river can be unforgiving in some areas. If you are unfamiliar with this area, please drive with caution or follow a fellow boater for direction.

Check out this new episode of Mike Finnegan's "Finnegan's Garage". We used our new Jet Boat Speed Shop (www.JetBoatSpeedShop.com) to help out the guys over there to source a 10 qt oil pan for their LS motor they are putting into his '76 Rogers Bonneville TR. The first pan didn't fit and the 2nd pan just didn't have enough capacity. Look for the next episode soon to come where they install this new 10qt pan.
