Walker County Lake Temporarily Closed; New Lake Manager Needed

December 12, 2013

Walker County Public Fishing Lake near Jasper is temporarily closed pending the appointment of a new Lake Manager. Persons wishing to apply for the position may do so by contacting the Alabama Fisheries Section, Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries (WFF), 64 N. Union Street, Montgomery, Alabama, 36130.
 
An information packet which explains the duties of a Lake Manager is available by calling the WFF Fisheries Section at 334-242-3471.
 
Lake Managers are appointed by the WFF to conduct daily operations of the 23 lakes in the state lakes program. Lake Managers are not employees of the State of Alabama; they receive compensation through the sale of permits and concessions at the lake. Housing is provided at Walker County Lake, but a Lake Manager must use their own equipment to maintain the grounds of the lake and provide concessions for sale.
