The Mobile-Tensaw Delta consists of approximately 20,323 acres of water. It is formed by the confluence of the Alabama and Tombigbee Rivers. The Mobile-Tensaw Delta is a complex network of tidally influenced rivers, creeks, bays, lakes, wetlands, and bayous. Since the Mobile-Tensaw Delta empties into Mobile Bay, it is a productive estuary with numerous species of fresh and saltwater fish.


The Mobile-Tensaw, William Bill Holland and Upper Delta Wildlife Management Areas offer hunting and wildlife viewing opportunities for those utilizing the Delta. Anglers enjoy the Delta, because of the good fishing, and the natural beauty of the marsh, cypress and tupelo gum forests.

Kids Fishing Events

Held periodically throughout the year!


Bait is provided, but you must bring your own pole if you have one. Anyone 16+ must have an Alabama freshwater fishing license to participate. Anyone 15 and younger is not required to have a fishing license as long as they are supervised by a licensed adult (our Naturalist!).

Beginners and people who have never fished before are welcome! Short lessons on how to cast a fishing pole and bait a hook can also be given to those who might need help. Learning patience while waiting for a fish to bite is the hardest thing to master!


*weather dependent.* Follow Meaher State Park-Alabama on Facebook to stay up to date with event changes.

Girl Scouts Love State Parks!


Girl Scout Troop 8017 - Fairhope, AL visits Meaher State Park


Girls Scouts and families participated in Girl Scouts Love State Parks at Meaher on September 10th to learn all about fishing! They enjoyed learning to cast, bait hooks, and remove fish from their lines. This was a wonderful opportunity for them to learn all about conservation and recreation in Alabama State Parks!


Some of their most memorable experiences were getting close up to a catfish and having the opportunity to touch its slimy skin.
