Alabama maps that haven’t been updated since the 1970’s and 1980’s have been updated. While the old maps lacked definition, the new maps, supplied by The Alabama Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries (WFF), are less expensive to produce, are more accurate, and have greater detail, including greater detail of State Public Fishing Lakes, which they hope will help anglers catch more fish.
- The older maps varied in depth and lacked the detail of the newer maps,” said Matt Marshall, WFF State Lakes Supervisor.
- By updating the contour maps we hope to provide better information for anglers to catch more fish.
- WFF owns and operates 23 State Public Fishing Lakes in 20 counties throughout Alabama.
