Lake Harding In Alabama

Lake Harding, Alabama

Boating, camping and fishing.

Straddling the GA/AL border, Lake Harding, AKA Bartlett’s Ferry Reservoir is a 5,800-acre boating playland located just east of Opelika, AL. Multiple boat launch ramps are available in both states for launching pleasure and fishing boats. Kayaks, canoes and other small craft can be launched from areas with access for shoreline fishing. Plenty of campgrounds and RV hookups are available in the area, both in GA and AL. Much of the 156 miles of shoreline is dotted with boat docks - a favorite hangout for fish and baitfish. Bass, catfish, stripers, hybrid striped bass, perch, crappie, white bass and sunfish roam these waters awaiting anglers. In Spring and Fall most fish move shallow, then deeper in summer and winter. Schooling fish like stripers and white bass follow schools of baitfish, often to the surface in warm water and quite deep in colder water.
