ADCNR Looks Forward to New Partnership at Coffee County Public Fishing Lake

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) is partnering with the City of Elba and Coffee County regarding the operations of the Coffee County Public Fishing Lake. Operational changes and improvements are currently in progress; the lake will need to remain closed for a time for these to be completed.

“The public fishing lakes program is a vital component in the Department’s drive to meet needs in communities throughout Alabama,” said Chris Blankenship, ADCNR Commissioner. “The Coffee County Public Fishing Lake is one of our most treasured community resources, so we’re maximizing enhancements there and look forward to announcing the reopen date soon.”

Alabama’s State Public Fishing Lakes are located throughout the state and are managed by the Fisheries Section of ADCNR’s Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries (WFF) Division for quality fishing for largemouth bass, bluegill, redear sunfish, channel catfish and crappie (in most lakes).

ADCNR promotes wise stewardship, management, and enjoyment of Alabama’s natural resources through four divisions: Marine Resources, State Lands, State Parks, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries. Learn more at
