Default Sipsey fork AL fishing report

I made my first trip to the sipsey fork Saturday (1-27). The midges were active. My catching was slow in the morning (zip), but picked up considerably after lunch (7 to hand, 3 ldr's). All fish were caught on midges, and all were released. I talked to several folks who were leaving while I was eating my sandwich at the truck, and they also reported slow mornings. The surface temperature warmed in the afternoon, maybe the water did also.

Positive:
It was great having all the room for backcasts.
The people I spoke with were all nice.

Negative:
The minimum flow needs to be increased. The sipsey gives new meaning to the term "long drifts". I enjoy the challenge of slow water, but just a little more flow would help. I'm glad to see from other posts that this is being discussed.

Overall, I enjoyed my trip to the sipsey, and I will return soon.

Hey Dale,

I was kinda thinking you might be there, sorry I missed you also. I never made it all the way up to the dam. I went in right past the pumping station, and fished up and around the first bend going upriver.
Thought about going by the flyshop on my way out about 4:30, but was just too tired and supper was calling me home. I'll be back on the first good weekend, maybe we could hook up then.
