Located along Interstate 20, about 30 miles east of Birmingham, Logan Martin Lake covers more than 15,000 acres and has about 270 miles of shoreline in St. Clair and Talladega counties.
Logan Martin is the third reservoir in a chain of six on the Coosa River that begins with Weiss Lake on the Georgia border and extends almost to Montgomery.
With its many sloughs, creeks and small inlets, locals have long called Logan Martin "Lake of a Thousand Coves."
But Logan Martin is also notable for its small variance in water lever, a difference of only about five feet on average.
Large numbers of both largemouth and spotted bass populate Logan Martin Lake, as well as striped bass, white bass, hybrid bass, crappie, catfish (mostly of the channel variety), bream, drum, carp and gar.
Recent bass club tournament data puts Logan Martin among the best lakes in Alabama for percent success and in bass caught per angler per day.
There are a number of local and national fishing tournaments held on the lake annually, and Logan Martin has hosted championship events of the FLW Outdoors Tour and the Bassmaster Classic in 1992, 1993 and 1997.
Logan Martin is a part of the 11-lake Alabama Bass Trail, which will hold a series of tournaments beginning next year and crown the state's first official bassing champion.
Logan Martin Lake is extremely popular for boating, skiing and swimming.
While the upper reaches of the lake is largely a run-of-the-river reservoir, above the I-20 bridge the river expands, although it is largely confined to the original river course, in addition to the many mouths of its tributary streams.
Below the bridge, Logan Martin expands into large areas of open water. Logan Martin is extremely popular with boating enthusiasts during summer weekends.
The lake ranges from 35 to 110 feet.
