Fishing the Locust Fork of the Warrior River

The Locust Fork is at the upper eastern end of the Warrior Basin.  Its steep valleys and rocky bed are popular with kayakers and whitewater canoeists during higher spring flows. The Locust Fork is popular for bream fishing and spotted bass.  Access is relatively limited.  When the Locust Fork meets the Mulberry Fork, the Warrior River is formed.
