Alabama's Sipsey Fork Tailwater

Most anglers don’t associate Alabama with coldwater trout fishing, but indeed the Sipsey Fork of the Black Warrior River provides interesting tailwater fishing below the 21,200-acre Lewis Smith Lake. “But Sipsey Fork is a somewhat dainty creek, with none of the brawling characteristics of the Cumberland River. At low water (no discharge from the dam) it was stunningly clear, surprisingly cold and blanketed with mossy, basketball-size rocks that made wading treacherous.” Gary Garth in the Louisville Courier-Journal.
