ABOUT SMITH LAKE
With its 500 miles of shoreline and encompassing over 21,000 acres, Smith Lake in Alabama is a man-made wonder. A project developed by the Alabama Power Company and completed in 1961, the lake was created by damming the Sipsey Fork tributary of the Warrior River. Named for a past president of Alabama Power, Lewis Smith Dam is the largest earth-and-rock-filled dam east of the Mississippi River and one of the largest of its kind in the world.
Part of the lake extends into the Bankhead Natural Forest; Corinth, Clear Creek and Houston National Forest Recreation Areas are also located along the lake.
Smith Lake is renowned for its crystal clear waters, which can be as deep as 300 feet in places. Over 70 species of fish, including bass and trout, abound in these waters, where many professional fishing tournaments are held each year. Besides fishing the lake offers excellent opportunities for other water sports, including swimming, boating, jet-skis, and water skiing, as well as non-water-related activities like camping, picnicking and just plain relaxing.
