Species: Smallmouth Bass
Fishing Rating: 5
Water Temperature: 68
The unusually warm weather that we are experiencing here at Dale Hollow have the fish in a full spring pattern much earlier than normal. A lot of people who plan their vacations each year to coincide with the smallmouth spawn at Dale Hollow will likely be diasappointed to find it over with by the time they arrive. Anglers should expect patterns to be three to four weeks earlier than normal this year. Fish have already moved shallow into spawning areass and are being caught on a number of lures including jerk baits, crankbaits, spinnerbaits, swim baits, and live minnows.

Dale Hollow Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Found some smallies here this weekend 4/27 just after 8:00am. This point was the most productive spot of the day, we caught 9 fish over a 1 hour period. Theres some sunken cover thats about 20 feet off the bank, the bottom is sandy and raises up a bit. The fish we caught were suspended behind the sandy hump in about 18 feet of water, my guess the temp was around 62. The fish are definately deep, its all about temp this time of year. If you can find 62-64 degree water and structure, you will find the fish.

Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
