ABOUT THIS LAKE

With five past world record spotted bass catches, you can see why the lure of big spots brings anglers from all over the country to Lewis Smith Lake. Plus, the Gulf Coast strain of striped bass here often weighs in at more than 20 pounds. In fact, a monster 32 lb.-8 oz. striped bass caught on the lake is an Alabama record and many anglers feel there are 40- to 50-pound stripes just waiting to strike.

Lewis Smith Lake – usually called Smith Lake – is located in Cullman, Walker, and Winston Counties about an hour north of Birmingham or south of Huntsville on I-65. It is a beautiful, deep, clear lake with dozens of feeder streams, winding bays, and sloughs. Steep bluffs cradle much of the lake, with water depths dropping as deep as 60 or 70 feet just a few yards offshore. Hundreds of coves along the 500 miles of shoreline on this 21,000-acre lake provide anglers ample points to search for spotted bass.
