Clean public restrooms and concessions are available, including a wide variety of fishing tackle, live and artificial baits, and other fishing supplies, as well as drinks and refreshments. An accessible fishing pier makes it easy to reach deeper water without using a boat. Fish attractors have been added around the lake. Boats are also available for rent; a launching ramp is available for anglers with their own boats. Boats may have an outboard motor attached, but anglers may not use the outboard motor, only the trolling motor. Picnic pavilions are available; contact the lake manager.
Largemouth bass fishing is good year-round, with the biggest usually caught in February, March and April. Bank and boat anglers catch bream (bluegill and redear sunfish) from late spring through summer. Channel catfish are caught year-round, but the summer months are best. Crappie fishing is best in February, March, October, and November. Fish attractors have been added to Bibb County Lake and are marked for easy identification.
From Centreville at US Hwy 82, take Alabama Hwy. 5 north for 7-1/2 miles, then left on Fishing Lake Road to lake.
