Smith Lake Info
About Smith Lake
Lewis Smith Lake is located in north Alabama. It was created in 1961 by the Alabama Power Company as a result of the company’s construction of Lewis Smith Dam to produce hydroelectric power and improve river traffic conditions on the Sipsey fork of the Black Warrior River. It covers over 21,000 acres across Cullman, Walker, and Winston Counties. The maximum depth is 264 feet making it the deepest lake in Alabama. It is also the cleanest lake in Alabama and often ranked second in the entire Country behind Lake Tahoe in Sierra Nevada!
Deep water means great fishing too and this vibrant lake is ideal for monster bass as well as over 70 other species of fish but its also great for other recreational activities such as wake surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding, boating, or just floating.
The real estate values in this market have increased substantially in the last 5 years and every homeowner has seen magnificent returns on their original investments. The increase in developed communities along with the limited properties remaining available has caused a flurry of interest in this lake which is sure to continue for many generations to come. We are seeing a lot of interest from residents of other states, particularly Tennessee.
