I fish Tombigbee at forkland. The campground at forkland is real nice. you can reserve a site at I also deer hunt out of forkland. I wish I lived in that area those people live in paradise!!!!!

This link shows an aerial of McConnico creek to the north, the "old river bend" and the new cut in the river the corps made. Forkland campground is in McConnico creek. About 4 miles upriver on the right is Acron creek alot of stumps and cyprus trees. Down river about 3 miles on the right is taylor lake. Taylor is a long deep slough that has some grass, tree stumps and cyprus trees. The back end of taylor offers some good fishing. Down river about 5 miles is a slough on the left, I have never fished but I hope to this spring. Down river about 8 miles is Spidle lake. Spidle offers deep and shallow water, stumps and grass. Spidle is a huge slough it is 1 3/4 miles from the mouth to the back and about 1/4 mile at the widest point. Look out for stumps. I busted a prop shaft in there 2 years ago while deer hunting.

If you have a gps, I could send you some coordinates.

There are several small sloughs around the old river bend. It is 12 miles all the way around the bend.

Topo and aerial links:

Acron creek

Taylor lake

Spidle lake

Before you go you need to check this website. It is update daily on the river levels. I always check it before I take the 2 hour trip. Normal level is 36 ft. You will need to check the levels for the Demopolis Dam.

Good Luck this spring
