Lake Jordan

Lake Jordan

Located on the Coosa River twenty-five miles north of Montgomery, Lake Jordan covers 6,800 acres and is 18.4 miles long. It has 188 miles of shoreline with the upstream stretch being riverine. 

As the last lake on the Coosa River chain, Lake Jordan is very fertile and supports high densities of sport fish and forage species.

Fishing for Alabama spotted bass and largemouth bass is very popular, plus Jordan has good fishing for crappie, bream, catfish, and hybrid striped bass.

The tailrace below Mitchell Dam offers excellent fishing for bass, catfish, crappie and hybrids.

The Bouldin Canal leading to the Bouldin Dam on the south end of the lake provides excellent fishing for spotted bass when Alabama Power is generating at Bouldin Dam. Spots are conditioned to feed in the resulting current. Contact Alabama Power Company at 1-800-LAKES11 for tentative generation schedules.

There are many boat ramps available on Jordan. Two popular public ramps are at Bonner’s Point on the west side of the lake and Rotary Landing to the east.
