Dale Hollow Lake Fishing Report January 19, 2014

We have had some extremely cold weather this winter on Dale Hollow. The fishing has been maintaining a decent average on the fish bite. Mid lake has been somewhat slow, but during the period right after the extreme cold days we had smallmouth move up shallow for a few days. Bite was good on swim baits, pearl white in color. Large mouth were also shallow, locations needed to be where channels meet shallow flats. Most of the locations in the creeks were spotty due to area’s the shad were. If you can locate decent shad balls, generally you could locate decent bass in them areas. Jigs are fair to good, Olive/Orange in color 10-15 feet in depth and still maintaining areas close to creek or main lake channels. Water temp low 50’s, this should be a pretty consistent pattern unless we have another extreme cold period. Cloudy days float n’ fly has been consistent for some decent fish, mid creeks and pockets on main lake.
