The Sipsey Fork of the Black Warrior River is a 71-mile-long (114 km)[1] river located in Alabama, USA, and is formed by the junction of Thompson and Hubbard creeks in the Sipsey Wilderness of Bankhead National Forest. The Sipsey Fork discharges into the Mulberry Fork.[2] The Sipsey Fork below Smith Lake is one of the few places within the state to catch rainbow trout.
