Crow Creek WMA in Alabama

Trip Overview

Crow creek WMA is where Crow creeks flows into Lake Guntersville on the Tennessee river. There is a large shallow embayment north of highway 72 with several low islands. We put in at the Stevenson city park which has a boat ramp. The bay is full of water weeds and lilly pads.

We paddled around the bay and saw a deer on one of the islands. There were several Osprey flying overhead a couple with fish. Paddling North towards the hills we got into Crow Creek which meanders around with several oxbows. We paddled up past the railroad bridge to a metal grid surfaced automobile bridge. Janie was startled by a beaver splashing it's tail right beside her kayak. The lilly pads were in bloom and it was very beautiful.
