Most state public fishing lakes reopen in February

Friday marked the beginning of fishing season for 21 of Alabama’s 23 state-owned public fishing lakes. Located throughout the state, these lakes are noted for their quality fishing for bream, largemouth bass, channel catfish and crappie (in most lakes). Because these smaller lakes warm more quickly than larger bodies of water, early spring fishing can be excellent.

In addition to the 21 lakes opening in February, Fayette County Public Fishing Lake will reopen to fishing this spring. Anglers can expect excellent numbers of quality-size Florida largemouth bass. More information about the reopening of Fayette County lake will be announced soon. Washington County Public Fishing Lake remains closed while restocking efforts are underway.
