Default Sipsey River

The Sipsey River, below Smith Dam, in Alabama is one of a few places in Alabama you can catch trout. They stock about 3000 trout every two months or so. Usual stocker trout, but there are a few "bigger" ones in there. Good flyfishing especially above the chemical plant. Once you walk past the plant, there are several paths to take you down to the water and you can go all the way up to just below the dam on the dirt/mud road.

Be aware that they don't always follow the generation schedule!! The water rises quickly and I have almost be caught a few times trying to scramble out of there. They usually sound a siren before they release and sometimes you will have just a few minutes to make it to higher ground. I have been there a few times, though, when they sounded no siren and the water just started coming up. That was kinda scary. So, BE CAREFUL.

There is a flyshop where you turn on the road that take you to the chemical plant. Nice people there and helpful with fly selection, etc. They have a website at riversideflyshop.com.

To check on tentative water releases call 1-800-525-3711, then select 5, select 1, select 2.
