Does anyone know what the story is on Bear Creek Lake? I spent 4 years fishing and learning BC lake, and now for the last 2-3 years they have kept the summer level down 8 feet below summer pool and 12 feet down in the Fall and Winter. Sometimes it is down over 20 feet. You can't even launch a boat most of the time. Even if you could, all of the good fishing spots would be only 5 feet instead of 13 feet and the 8 foot spots are dry land. Have they abandoned this lake as a fishing lake? Only the old river channel is navigable now. About a year ago the Alabama fishing magazine listed Bear Creek as one of the top crappie fishing spots. The Author must not have known the current conditions of the lake when he wrote his misleading article.
