Smith Lake with Fishing Tips by Mike Bolton. 25"x38" Two-sided. Waterproof & Tear_Resistant! Like a diamond that is deep, clear and blue, Lewis Smith Lake is one of Alabama’s treasures. Located in Walker, Winston and Cullman counties, this 21,200-acre lake is different than most other Alabama reservoirs. If you typically fish a shallow, stained body of water, then your first trip onto Smith Lake can be intimidating. Watching your depth finder jump to 200 plus feet can leave you feeling lost. However, like most lakes, the majority of bass, bream and crappie fishing is done by casting to the numerous large rocks and fallen trees along the shoreline. With 500 plus miles of shoreline, it isn’t that difficult to find fish. An hour north of Birmingham or south of Huntsville and just off I-65, the lake is not difficult to find, either. The overall population of largemouth bass and spotted bass in the lake is good. Smith Lake also produces monster striped bass. Fish in the forty plus pound range are present, and some anglers feel there should be a fifty plus pound Smith Lake record caught soon. Anglers have fought several fish that broke off. One angler hooked a fish that, "had to go at least 70 pounds," the big one that got away. Live shad, available locally, are the preferred bait.
