Try putting in at Cottonton, AL - about half way up the river to Phenix City on AL-165. 165 intersects w/U.S. 431 just north of Lake Point. There is a very nice ramp, campground, etc. - formerly, an Army Corps of Engineers park. Launch, ease out to the river, turn north for about <1 Mi. Turn west into "Snake" Creek (what it was called when I was growing up). Depth drops almost to China. Slab Crappie all over sharing water with Green Trout. Bush hooks will produce some of the best Channel Cat you'll ever find - using dead Shad as bait. We used to run trot lines across the mouth of the creek - one run and we were on our way home (Columbus) to sell Catfish.
In GOD I trust...
