I would recommend fishing with a partner (to fish you out in case you fall in) and not anchoring until you are very experienced. Don't park the boat on a dead hole (a turbine that isn't running) because the initial blast of a turbine starting can easily swamp your boat. There are big rocks at Wilson and a lot less stuff to hit at Wheeler and Guntersville.
I'm heading over to north Alabama from Georgia to pick up my boat in Killen this weekend. I plan to fish Wilson, Wheeler, or Guntersville dam on my way home. If you want to give it a shot, post on this thread.
