About the Alabama Bass Trail
The Alabama Bass Trail was formed in 2012 as a cooperative effort between Governor Robert Bentley’s office, the Alabama Tourism Department, the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and the Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association. The ABT features 13 of Alabama’s premier bass-fishing lakes and stretches from the mountains of North Alabama south to the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta. With a mild climate, mineral rich reservoirs, affordable lodging and dining, as well as public access to boat ramps and marinas, Alabama is a year-round destination for anglers from across the country.
