Limestone County Alabama is bound on three sides by water -- the Elk River to the north and west and the Tennessee River/Wheeler Lake Reservoir along the south making it a popular destination for the avid angler or the weekend getaway on the water.
Our waters are rich fishing grounds and play host to a variety of tournaments throughout the year. Wheeler Lake is rated as a top fishing reservoir abundant with largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, spotted bass, blue catfish, bluegill, sunfish and crappie.
The tournaments may launch at Ingalls Harbor in Decatur, but many of those professional anglers make the trip across the lake to the shores of Limestone County for the grassy fields, rocky outcroppings, and well-known nutrient-rich waters near the Elk River confluence. Check our Events Calendar for a full list of Fishing Tournaments year round.
