Fishing in Alabama
Man Fishing on the Alabama River The fishing in Alabama couldn't be better, with hundreds of lakes to choose from, plus coastline that can offer extensive deep sea fishing for such creatures as swordfish, salmon, shark and the ever popular tuna in the gulf of Mexico. The angeling is unparalled here. Some excellent lakes include the Alabama River Lakes project which consists of three lakes: R.E. "Bob" Woodruff Lake, William Dannelly Reservoir, and Clalborne Lake. These areas offer campgrounds, primitive camping sites, day-use areas, and swimming beaches. There is something for everyone - historic sites, abundant fish and wildlife, and scenic bluffs.

Alabama River Lakes region offers a wide variety of activities in which to participate. These activities include camping, hiking, mountain biking, backpacking and state park related activities.

Bankhead Lake is the most northern project on the Black Warrior And Tombigbee River Lakes system. The area's clear waters stretch for 65 miles and encompass 9,100 surface acres. This includes the Loacust and Mulberry forks to the head of navigation.

The Corps maintains an overlook area with picnic facilities on the east side of the river above the John Hollis Bankhead Lock and Dam. All other development is either privately owned or commercial. There are several marinas and fish camps along the lake that provide boat docking and storage, fueling facilities, boat repairs, launching ramps, food, and supplies.

Although Coffeeville Lake remains mostly within the original river banks, Claiborne provides extensive opportunities for water-related recreation, such as boating, fishing, swimming and skiing. There are also plenty of good sites for picnicking, hunting, camping and hiking. One of the most beautiful views of the lake can be seen at Silver Creek Park; a rugged foot trail at Gullet's Bluff Provides access to a splendid waterfall.

Demopolis Lake is the largest lake in the Black Warrior-Tombigbee system. The lake extends 48 miles upriver on the Black Warrior and 53 miles up the Tombigbee and covers 10,000 acres.
