Flowing Towards the Future: Alabama's Riverkeepers in Action - August 21-27, 2023

The Alabama Freshwater Fishing report is your best resource for the Lake Guntersville Fishing Report, Weiss Lake Fishing Report, Lake Eufaula Fishing Report, and all the creeks, rivers, and reservoirs in between.

On this week’s episode, we’ll be checking in with some of our local Alabama Waterkeeper organizations to see how our fisheries are doing. If you’re an outdoors enthusiast who swims, jetskis, tubes, or fishes in our water, organizations like Coosa Riverkeeper and Mobile Baykeeper do a phenomenal job of keeping you up-to-date on whether it’s safe to swim and eat the fish from our waterways.

First up, we have Justinn Overton with Coosa Riverkeepers reporting on the Coosa RIver. Justinn monitors the waterways around Weiss Lake, Logan Martin Lake, Lake Jordan, Lay Lake, and Neely-Henry. She’s an avid outdoorswoman and environmentalist that has the information you need to know to keep you and your family safe while you’re out on the Coosa Lake Systems this weekend.

Next up, we have Cade Kistler with Mobile Baykeepers. Cade keeps track of the health of the Mobile-Tensaw Delta, Mobile Bay, Dog River, Fowl RIver, Perdido River, and many other waterways throughout Baldwin and Mobile Counties. Whether you’re a local or just visiting our bay and beaches for the weekend, Cade has the report on the issues or beautiful coastal waters face.

In this week’s show we talk PCB pollution, bacteria loads, and the current issue with our state’s plan to leave billions of tons of coal ash along the shoreline of our lakes and rivers. We talk about the 
issues coal ash can cause anglers, and what you can do to help.
