Bass and crappie are the favorite targets at William Bill Dannelly Reservoir, also known as Millers Ferry Reservoir. With over 500 miles of shoreline, this 35,000-acre body of water provides plenty of fishing action. Bass over three pounds are common, big stringers of crappie are common, and the lake also has populations of white bass, bluegill, sunfish, striped bass, hybrid stripers and catfish (often over 30 pounds). The lake is created behind the Millers Ferry Lock & Dam on the Alabama River in Central Alabama. Crappie hang around the brush in Spring while the bass tend to locate near creel channels, points and any structure allowing an ambush point for baitfish. Numerous boat ramps, campgrounds, beaches and picnic areas are available around the lake for fishing from the bank or launching kayaks or canoes.
