Aliceville Lake is an 8,300-acre reservoir located near the City of Aliceville in Pickens County, 28 miles upstream on the Tombigbee River to Columbus, Mississippi. The reservoir is formed by the Tom Bevill Lock and Dam which is located one mile southwest of Aliceville, Alabama, just off Alabama Highway 14. This reservoir is popular with anglers from Alabama and Mississippi. There are modern campgrounds, many day use facilities for picnicking or water sports, as well as primitive camping areas. There are two public access areas with bank and boat access and one user fee access area located on the Aliceville Reservoir. Since being impounded in 1980 by the U.S. Corps of Engineers, Aliceville Reservoir is best known for its largemouth bass and crappie fishing. There is a good abundance of largemouth bass up to 18-inches with a moderate number of larger bass. The crappie fishing has been outstanding at the Aliceville Reservoir.
