Dale Hollow Reservoir is a 28,000-acre lake known as the home of the world record smallmouth bass. Located in both Kentucky and Tennessee, this lake offers anglers the chance to catch largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, crappie, catfish, trout, stripers, sunfish, walleye, muskie, and paddlefish. Dale Hollow Reservoir is best known for its bass population and regularly makes the Bassmaster Top 100 Bass Lakes in the USA list. The quality and quantity of the fish here are very high thanks to the nutrient-rich waters. The best way to fish this lake is by boat; however, you can find some good spots if you prefer to fish from the 650 miles of shoreline. This lake contains plenty of areas for fish to hide, including channels, ledges, humps, islands, and points. The fish tend to stick to the shallow areas in the spring and fall and head to the deeper waters in the winter and summer. You’ll find several boat ramps around the lake, as well as other areas where you can launch canoes or kayaks.
