The Alabama Bass Trail is a cooperative effort between Governor Robert Bentley’s office, the Alabama Tourism Department, the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and the Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association.
The Alabama Bass Trail features 11 of Alabama’s premiere bass-fishing lakes and stretches from the mountains of North Alabama south to the Mobile Delta. With a mild climate, mineral rich reservoirs, affordable lodging and dining, as well as public access to boat ramps and marinas, Alabama is a year-round destination for anglers from across the country.

“Don Logan and I first discussed the concept of promoting the great fisheries in Alabama in my office. The launch of the Alabama Bass Trail is the realization of that goal. Anglers from around the nation will be encouraged to come and fish where the pros fish. I firmly believe the Bass Trail will grow into a successful model that neighboring states will want to emulate.”
Dr. Robert Bentley
Governor of Alabama
“I congratulate the Alabama Mountain Lakes Association on accepting the responsibility to develop and operate the Alabama Bass Trail in association with the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society. You will have a wealth of cooperation from local businesses, organizations and governments. This effort will significantly increase the visibility of our state with anglers around the country. Our agency will assist you in every way possible.”
Lee Sentell, Director
Alabama Tourism Department
“When visitors enter our state they are greeted by a sign that says “Alabama the Beautiful.” Nothing defines that beauty more than does Alabama’s waterways. Regardless of your fishing expertise, we invite you to “Get Hooked” at one of the eleven lakes and rivers on the new Alabama Bass Trail. Whatever your idea of fishing is, you will find it in Alabama.”
