White, hybrid and striped bass make annual spring runs upriver and have created quite a fishery at the headwaters (below Neely Henry dam).
Logan Martin Reservoir is located in east-central Alabama on the Coosa River, approximately 30 miles east of Birmingham (the lake borders St. Clair and Talladega counties). The reservoir extends 48.5 miles from the dam upstream to Neely Henry dam and contains 15,263 acres.
Recent collections of crappie revealed adequate numbers of black crappie in the 9 to 12 inch range. The best times to crappie fish are generally early spring and fall.
Largemouth bass and spotted bass are the main draw for anglers. Largemouth bass growth has been excellent. Largemouth bass are abundant and well represented in the 12-18 inch range.
Spotted bass are also abundant with many spots in the 14-21 inch range, representing some of the best values in the state. In fact the spotted bass numbers in the 17-20 inch range equaled the highest value ever recorded from the lake.
