And people who just love fishing? Well, they’ve found oh so much to love in Alabama!



Lake Eufaula gained a reputation in the 1960s and ’70s as the “Bass Fishing Capital of the World,” and it’s still considered a prime spot to catch them.

Lakes, rivers, dams and deltas offer such variety of open spaces, protected cover, solitude and adventure that it seems there truly is a spot for everyone. Whether on the lakes made famous for trophy bass and award-winning crappie or at a little-known honey hole catching trout for dinner, fishing in Alabama is a tradition. And it’s a fun one to share!
