The City of Gadsden Parks and Recreation Department, along with partners from the Rainbow City Fly Fishing Club, Greater Gadsden Area Tourism,
and State Representative B. Craig Lipscomb have worked to make trout fishing available in Black Creek at Noccalula Falls Park. The goal is to give anglers a beautiful scenic setting to fish for Rainbow Trout in North Alabama. This group works each year to make improvements on the project, and give a better experience each year. Your feedback is greatly appreciated each season.

A State of Alabama fishing license and a special trout permit from the City of Gadsden are needed to fish for trout in Black Creek (within the park boundary).

The stocking of trout will be done twice per year and fishing will be allowed roughly November through June (dates subject to change based on weather).
This is a Delayed Harvest stream, the Delayed Harvest season changes each year and dates are posted on the website, as well as at the park.
