Dale Hollow Lake is listed yearly on Bassmaster’s “Top 100 Bass Lakes in the U.S” as a hotspot for prime bass fishing. Known for its world-record smallmouth bass, this 28,000-acres lake offers 650 miles of shoreline. Here you’ll find smallmouth bass, striper, sunfish, crappie, catfish, trout, walleye, muskie, paddlefish, and other species. Dale Hollow Lake sits five miles southwest of Albany on the south-central border of Kentucky and Tennessee. The best way to fish the lake is by boat, which you can launch from one of six boat ramps. Multiple shore access areas are available for bank fishing. During spring and fall, the fish tend to stay in the shallow waters, whereas in the summer and winter, you’ll find them in the deeper waters.
