Conservation and education programs are integral to the trail’s goals, with an emphasis on encouraging anglers young and old to be good stewards of Alabama’s natural resources. As part of the Alabama Bass Trail, we will offer annual opportunities for communities and others to get involved improving our public waterways.
The Alabama Bass Trail and the Alabama Student Angler Bass Fishing Association have developed a service program that engages Alabama’s youth anglers. With the help of these young men and women in building artificial reefs, performing drops at designated GPS locations, and cleaning up trash during the annual water draw down, we will ensure healthy aquatic habitats and ecological systems at the lakes.
“The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is pleased to have the opportunity to work with the new Alabama Bass Trail and to lend assistance as we promote angling and conservation efforts on Alabama’s bountiful inland public waters. On behalf of the entire DCNR staff, we appreciate and celebrate the work to promote Alabama’s public waters and world-class bass fisheries. It is our hope that others will see the potential of this great effort and join us as we strive to promote and strengthen Alabama’s fishing industry.”
