Set in the midst of a majestic pine forest along the 22,000-acre William Dannelly Reservoir (better known locally as "Millers Ferry"), Roland Cooper State Park offers excellent fishing.

Millers Ferry Reservoir is a regionally important reservoir in southwest Alabama that provides quality fishing opportunities. Both largemouth bass and crappie fishing are considered excellent in this reservoir. This reservoir consistently produces bass of three pounds or larger. Results from statewide bass club tournament data in 2000 indicated that Millers Ferry was third best in the percent of anglers who weighed in a bass and ranked tenth best in overall bass fishing quality. This is due in part to high fertility and a relatively stable threadfin shad population.

Crappie fishing is best in the late winter and early spring. At this time of year crappie are concentrated around cover in creeks such as: Fosters, Pine Barren, Chilatchee, and Bogue Chitto.

Channel catfish and blue catfish are frequent targets of local anglers, and blue catfish over thirty pounds are not uncommon. Late winter is an excellent time to catch large blues in the tailwaters below the Millers Ferry dam. The tailwater also produces good fishing, in the spring for hybrid striped bass, striped bass, and bream.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
June 15 Needs maintenance by Jimmy
This park is in a great location and is set up well. But there has obviously been no maintenance performed around the RV campground in quite some time. Tree limbs, leaves and high grass cover the entire area. I had to go to the office and borrow a rake to clean a path around our camper to be able to walk around safely. There is a great opportunity here for a Boy Scout troop or some other community organization to preform a service project and get the area cleaned up. It would be much more appealing to campers with just a little bit of regular maintenance.
