Lake Details

Summary

What you need to know about fishing Jackson Lake

Jackson Lake is a small reservoir, relative to its neighbors, at 4,750 surface acres and approximately 135 miles of shoreline. The man-made lake was formed in 1910 by building the Lloyd Shoals Dam south of the confluence of the Yellow, South, and Alcovy Rivers. Although striped and spotted bass are present in Jackson lake, almost 60% of the bass population is largemouth with average sizes at 2 pounds. Largemouth can be caught using crank baits and finesse techniques near docks, flooded timber, and rock points. In the fall, bass are typically caught in larger than average size and can be found at deeper depths.
