Mobile Delta

The Mobile Delta covers more than 20,000 acres of water north of Mobile Bay. It is second only to the Mississippi River Delta in size. It is 30 miles long, 12 miles wide and covers more than 200,000 acres of marshes, swamps and river bottomlands.

The Delta is formed by the confluence of the Alabama and Tombigbee rivers and is a web of bays, creeks, lakes, rivers and wetlands affected by tides and floods. Anglers never have to wait long for conditions to change.

Fishing for bream, crappie and largemouth bass is good.

During fall, anglers often catch flounder, redfish, and speckled trout. 

With more than 20 access sites, launching a boat in never a problem on the Mobile Delta For those without boats, fishing sites include Cliff’s Landing off Highway 225, Meaher State Park pier off the Highway 90-98 Causeway (fee), Choccalotta Access Area on Highway 90-98, and the U.S.S.
