Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources
The initial 2017 meeting of the Alabama Conservation Advisory Board focused on how well Alabama’s hunters and saltwater anglers complied with reporting regulations, and the assessment definitely showed mixed results.
Need a place to fish? ADCNR manages public fishing lakes in 20 counties. February 1 marks the beginning of the fishing season schedule for these lakes and most will be open six days a week. Because smaller lakes warm more quickly than larger bodies of water, early spring fishing can be excellent. Anglers may fish from the pier, bank, rental boat or personal boat.
