Located twenty-five miles due north of the city of Montgomery in central Alabama, Lake Jordan is a 6,800-acre impoundment created by Alabama Power Company in 1928 on the Coosa River. Public and private boat ramps, as well as several private marinas provide access to Lake Jordan. Two popular public boating access areas include Bonner’s Point on the west side of the lake and Rotary Landing to the east.

From the river-like terrain found in the first 10 miles of the headwaters below Mitchell Dam to the lower end where the lake widens, Lake Jordan features 188 miles of irregular shoreline and many types of aquatic weeds, rocky banks and boulders scattered along deep, rock bluffs and loads of wood cover. Lake Jordan is very fertile and supports high densities of sport fish and forage species.

Coosa River spotted bass, largemouth bass, and hybrid striped bass make Lake Jordan an angler’s dream – and it’s an under-fished lake. The most productive times to fish are during spring and fall; during the summer months, nighttime bass fishing also can be very good. Largemouth bass are more cover oriented and are usually caught by fishing in or near dense water willow stands that grow near the shoreline. Spotted bass are more structure oriented and are likely to be caught from points, humps, ledges, rock piles, and vegetation.

Popular bass lures include willow-leaf spinnerbaits in white or shad color patterns, topwater chuggers and walking baits in shad colors, hard and soft plastic jerk-baits, and Carolina-rigged centipedes or finesse worms in various shades of green.
