Mayo’s Lock and Dam is a popular early-season destination for anglers after white bass and crappie as these species make their annual spring spawning migration up the river. During the steamboat era, Mayo’s Lock and Dam allowed the passage of steamboats carrying passengers and freight up the Coosa River to Rome, Georgia. Although the lock has been inactive for many years, the area has been improved to serve as an access for anglers. Anglers are allowed to fish off the lock structure and from the bank immediately downstream of the lock. A paved boat ramp is also available. At spring flows, the dam is well underwater and provides the combination of structure and flow that fish such as striped bass seek out. Because of the deep water and fast turbulent flow, wading is not an option. The best striped bass fishing is near the dam, but boat anglers should use caution. Eddies and rips can pull a small boat into the turbulence and capsize it. Key species: striped bass, white bass, crappie.
