Jones Bluff Reservoir (also known as R. E."Bob" Woodruff Lake) impounds the Alabama River between Montgomery and Selma in central Alabama. The Army Corps of Engineers built the Robert F. Henry Lock and Dam to create a 12,510 acre reservoir that provides navigation, hydroelectric power generation, and recreation. Jones Bluff is a riverine impoundment; meaning much of the reservoir is confined to the historic river channel. Its low retention time and water storage capacity often result in frequent winter and spring flooding. Locals still refer to it as the Alabama River; however, numerous creeks have been flooded, providing a wide variety of fishing opportunities.

Its level fluctuates minimally, the lake is an ideal spot for recreation activities. Woodruff Lake was made possible through the construction of the Robert F. Henry Lock and Dam which was completed in 1975. The dam backs up the river to a minimum depth of nine feet from the upper end of the William "Bill" Dannelly Reservoir to the Alabama Power Company's Walter Bouldin Dam on the Coosa River. The project's power plant at R.F. Henry produces enough electricity to serve approximately 45,000 homes. Woodruff Lake offers such activities as fishing, boating, water skiing, picnicking, camping swimming and hiking.
