Trying to see how many people on here are from around Smith Lake in Alabama. We just bought a place up there at Silver Rock Cove.

We go up to clear creek a good bit, but I don't think that's very close to you.

Well glad to find someone on here. I have only been to the lake once and it rained the whole time so I did not get a chance to check it out. I just bought a 2008 Supra sunsport 22v and cant wait to get out there. Is there any good places to eat on the water?

I'm right around the corner from Silver Rock!

Our place is on CR 938, where you go past the Dead End sign, I take the right. By water we are just around the bend Upstream from Silver Rock.

Look for a grey and red Ski Nautique 2001 with Extended Pylon this summer and flag me down.

Better yet, ride up my way and pull up to the dock and share a beer with us

To answer your other question, there arent any convenient places to eat on this part of the lake that you would get to by boat. There is the restraunt at Ryan Creek Marina, but thats almost an hour or better by boat, but less than 10 minutes by car.

Good deal Chris. I will ride up and look for you. Our place is still being built but they said will be finished by May 31st or sooner. They are supposed to have the boat storage finished in a few weeks so if it is I might go ahead and take it up so we can still go out before our place is done. I will be in a black Supra. Right now with no graphics but they are supposed to come put them on when they get them in stock. Only thing I do not like about Smith lake so far is it is a dry county. You have to have beer on the lake.

We were down in Crooked this weekend. The water level is at full pool, and was like glass a good part of the weekend. There is a ton of trash and debris floating though. Looks like someone replaced their dock and pulled all the styrofoam up onto shore while the water was low. Evidenlty not high enough becasue there were 6-8 large blocks floating around as well as a ton of trash, toys, etc. I cleaned up what i could reach, but I dont thin k Imade a dent.

cold. I didnt have a thermo, but I'd say mid 50's probably. The kids jumped off of the dock, but got out pretty quick and were already turning blue. Looks like its going to be a while still for it to warm up this year.

I rode down to the lake Sunday afternoon to check on things after that big storm system went through on Saturday. Our pla was fine, didnt even blow over a resin chair on the dock.

We then went down to Silverrock and noticed a few small trees were uproted near the road on the way in but nothing major. They did have a leg of the dock break loose, it was pulled up on the boat ramp, not sure if that was done Sat or earlier though. The Boat storage looks like its finished, and the new houses ar ecomign along pretty good from the looks fo things.

Yeah, I was up Sunday too. First time I took my boat out. The water has a lot of debris in it. We tried putting in at Arrowhead Marina but it was really bad. So we went back to Ryan Creek and put in there. We went by Silver rock too, they are coming along. The boat storage is not quite done yet so we are leaving our boat at Ryan creek until its ready. We only went out for a few hours but I think we are going back out this Saturday for the whole day.

I plan on putting my boat in Saturday. Hopeing to get a set or two in during the afternoon. There is usually a good bit of debris especially in Crooked after a good rain, and there was plenty of that Saturday. It clears out fast though, In fact by Sun around noon there wasn't anything around our place save for one large floating log out in the middle.

What problems did you have at Arrowhead? I havent been down there since early last summer, but typically when the water is at full pool we dont have any trouble there. You do need to stay at idle speed until you get around the point though.

Heath - Could you not launch at Silverrock? or is lack of parking an issue there?

Hey guys just ran across this thread so hello to all the smith lake peeps. I live in cullman, i used to ride smith all the time but we found a little somewhat private lake and got access to it. It is 10 min from the 157 exit in Cullman. If any of you want to come ride hit me up. Water is always glass and I am the only boat out there. I have a loaded down super air so i can make the wake any size you want. I'm always up for riding with new people so come anytime. I try to ride about 3 afternoons a week or mid day on saturday.

No you cant launch at Silver rock. The launch is set up for the forklift only. So I was going to put in at arrowhead but that was the day after the big storm and it was flooded and had debris everywhere. So for now I am going to just leave it at Ryan Creek till I know Silver rock is ready. They should be just about done. But I would rather wait till they work out all the bugs. My boat would of been the first one stored there so I wanted to give them a little more time. Our place is getting close to being finished so we should be down almost every weekend soon. I will let you know when we get down and set up so we can meet up one day.

Not sure if anyone will be around, but me and several friends have a house rented out at the mouth of clear creek for memorial day weekend. we will be in one maybe 2 sans and a black and yellow vlx. Stop buy and say hello. We should be grilling all weekend and riding early morning and late afternoons. Hopefully we can find some smooth water from time to time.

yea they are still selling nautiques. They have a nice one inside right now. But they are no longer selling Supra's. They are behind on their bill. I think they are having management problems. I am new to the lake so I am not sure where Clear Creek is. Is it close to Ryans marina?

Clear creek is almost at the opposite end of the lake from Ryan Creek. Its shoots off of Brushy to the West about half way up Brushy.

Rod, sorry I missed you last week. Pretty much any other week this summer and I would have been down at least a day or two. First of June is when we typically do our beach trip to see family in FL.
