Jordan Lake, located in central Alabama, is a popular fishing destination known for its abundant fish populations and picturesque scenery. Spanning over 6,800 acres, the lake offers anglers a variety of fishing opportunities.

One of the popular fish species found in Jordan Lake is bass. Largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass all thrive in this fertile fishery. The lake's structure, including submerged vegetation, fallen trees, and rocky areas, provides excellent habitat for bass. Anglers can target largemouth bass using various techniques such as flipping jigs, crankbaits, and topwater lures. Spring and fall are typically the best seasons to fish for bass when they are more active and feeding aggressively.

Crappie fishing is also prevalent in Jordan Lake, attracting anglers throughout the year. Both black crappie and white crappie can be found in the lake. Anglers often have success targeting crappie around submerged brush piles, fallen trees, and bridge pilings. Live minnows, jigs, and small plastic baits are effective in enticing crappie bites. The spring and fall seasons, especially during the spawning periods, are particularly productive for crappie fishing.

Catfish anglers will also find opportunities in Jordan Lake. Channel catfish, flathead catfish and blue catfish are commonly caught in the lake. Anglers can target catfish using a variety of baits such as cut bait, chicken liver, or stinkbaits. The lake's deep channels, drop-offs, and areas with structure are productive spots for catfish fishing. Night fishing can be particularly successful for catfish, as they tend to be more active during this time.

The lake also supports populations of hybrid stripers, bluegill and redear sunfish.

Boating is a popular activity on Jordan Lake, providing anglers with the opportunity to explore different areas of the lake and access prime fishing spots. The lake offers several boat ramps for easy launching and accommodates various watercraft, including boats and pontoons.

Lake Jordan is located 25 miles north of Montgomery, in central Alabama, on the Coosa River. With all the ins and outs of the 188 miles of shoreline, there are plenty of places to drop a line.
