The Yellow River is another example of a blackwater run typical in the southeast region. The run is slow for the most part, with one quick stretch just past the halfway point. Wildlife enthusiasts will love the vast array of fauna evident here; the huge variety of birds is an ornithologist’s delight. In the forest along the river are white-tailed deer, Eastern wild turkeys, bobcats, fox, river otters, alligators, and many species of snakes. The Yellow River is another river in the southeast region of Alabama that is highly subject to water levels. The Yellow River is widely known as one in its natural state—an outdoors enthusiast’s paradise. Anglers love the abundance of fish found here, which include largemouth bass, catfish, and bream. At several places along the river, you’ll paddle by pools and see lures caught on brush along the banks, telltale evidence of good fishing spots.
