Dale Hollow Lake In Kentucky

Dale Hollow Lake, Kentucky

Boating, camping and fishing.

A massive boating paradise and home of the world-record smallmouth bass, Dale Hollow Lake is a preferred destination for boating, water sports, camping and fishing. This 28,000-acre lake is located in the south-central part of the state, on the TN-KY border, 5 miles southwest of Albany, KY. Rental boats at the lake include small fishing boats, to family pleasure boats, to pontoon boats, to large sailboats and houseboats. Anglers will be happy to find 650 miles of shoreline and half a dozen or more places to launch a boat, canoe or kayak. Stripers, sunfish, crappie, catfish, trout, walleye, muskie, paddlefish and other species of fish swim these nutrient-rich waters as well. Fishing from a boat is the preferable way to fish Dale Hollow Reservoir. However, there are numerous places around the lake where bank fishing is accessible. Points, creek channels, ledges, humps and islands throughout the impoundment provide great habitat for fish and baitfish.
