Logan Martin Lake, situated on the Coosa River in Alabama, is a popular fishing destination known for its diverse fish populations and recreational opportunities. Spanning over 15,000 acres, the lake offers anglers a variety of fishing experiences.

Popular fish species found in Logan Martin Lake include largemouth bass, spotted bass and smallmouth bass. The lake's structure, including submerged vegetation, boat docks, and points, provides excellent habitat for bass. Anglers can target largemouth bass using various techniques such as flipping jigs, crankbaits, and topwater lures. Spring and fall are typically the best seasons for bass fishing, as the fish are more active and feeding actively during these times.

Crappie fishing is also prevalent in Logan Martin Lake, attracting anglers throughout the year. Both black crappie and white crappie can be found in the lake. Anglers often have success targeting crappie around submerged brush piles, fallen trees, and bridge pilings. Live minnows, jigs, and small plastic baits are effective in enticing crappie bites. The spring and fall seasons, especially during the spawning periods, tend to be the most productive for crappie fishing.

Catfish anglers will find opportunities in Logan Martin Lake as well. Channel catfish and flathead catfish are commonly caught in the lake. Anglers can target catfish using a variety of baits such as cut bait, chicken liver, or stinkbaits. The lake's deep channels, drop-offs, and areas with structure are prime spots for catfish fishing. Night fishing can be particularly productive for catfish, as they are more active during this time.

This 15,000-acre reservoir, with over 275 miles of shoreline awaits anglers to fish from the bank (where access is permitted) or from a boat. Largemouth, spots and redeye bass can be caught year round but spring and fall are ideal times as the bass move shallower. White, hybrid and striped bass make annual runs upriver each Spring creating conditions for excellent fishing below the Neely Henry dam. To enhance fishing opportunities there are fishing piers, marinas, public fishing areas and boat ramps for pleasure and fishing boats. Numerous places around the lake provide access for portage of a canoe or kayak. Plenty of campgrounds scattered around the lake make for an ideal place to stay for a fishing outing or a family vacation.
