Known as The Crappie Capital of the World, Weiss Lake hosts many local, state, and national fishing tournaments. Waters flowing from the Coosa, Little and Chattooga Rivers converge to form one of the largest freshwater lakes east of the Mississippi River and, consequently, is the central attraction for Cedar Bluff tourists, vacationers, and retirees alike.
The brilliant sunset colors dance above the calm waters of Weiss Lake, upon the banks of which rests the town of Cedar Bluff. Constructed in the early 1960's to serve as a reservoir for hydro-electric power generation, the lake occupies over 30,200 acres and has nearly 450 miles of shoreline. It is surrounded by forest-covered mountains, an array of beaches, and natural scenic views. Many enjoy touring the area by boat, while others appreciate the ideal sporting and fishing conditions.
The lake level is controlled by Alabama Power according to planned seasonal levels with full pool established at 564 ft. above sea level. Near real time lake levels can be obtained by calling 1-800-525-3711.
