Clay County Public Fishing Lake will reopen on September 2, 2023, under the operation of new lake managers Greg and Victoria Clark. The lake had been temporarily closed during the transition of operations to the new lake managers. The lake is located 1 mile west of the town of Delta on State Lake Road.
The facility features three lakes totaling 74 surface acres, public restrooms, a covered fishing pier and a boat ramp. Bait, fishing tackle and snacks may be purchased at the lake. In addition to a valid fishing license, a daily $3 fishing permit is required.
Alabama’s State Public Fishing Lakes are located throughout the state and are managed by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) for quality fishing for largemouth bass, bluegill, redear sunfish, channel catfish and crappie (in most lakes).
