Big Creek Lake

Big Creek Lake covers 3,600 acres and is located in west Mobile County. It serves as the public water supply for Mobile. This reservoir was formed by impounding Big Creek.

Unusual for lower Alabama, Big Creek Lake is deep with clear water. Fishing for bream, bass, catfish and crappie is good, but takes an adjustment from fishing the nearby waters of Delta.

Fox Landing at the end of Howell’s Ferry Road is the only boating access point for the lake, and a launch fee is required. Bank fishing is available at Fox Landing and at the US Hwy 98 Bridge. Bank fishing is not allowed on the dam or spillway areas.
