Guntersville Lake

fishing tips


      An impoundment of the Tennessee River, Guntersville Lake is known for its abundance of largemouth bass, striped bass, black crappie and catfish.

Lake Guntersville, Alabama's largest lake, is known as one of the best fishing lakes in the Southeast. This scenic lake in the foothills of the Appalachians stretches for 75 miles through northern Alabama between Nickajack Dam and Guntersville Dam on the Tennessee River. The water level on the lake is very stable, seldom varying more than two feet in depth, as the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) requires a set depth for the channel. The lake regularly draws anglers from all over Alabama, as well as from Georgia and Tennessee.

A number of free public boat ramps and private marinas provide anglers with plenty of easy access to the lake. Many fishermen target the lake's largemouth bass, although fishing for bream, catfish, and crappie is also popular. Bream fishing is excellent during late spring and early summer, and crappie fishing is good during the spring and fall. Some very large catfish have been taken from the lake, some weighing over 80 pounds. Milfoil and hydrilla weed beds create excellent habitats for the lake's bass. Although there are some smallmouth, striped and spotted bass in the lake, largemouth bass are the dominate species in Lake Guntersville.

Bass fishing tournaments are held year round at Lake Guntersville. These range from small club events to regional and national tournaments. The fishing in Lake Guntersville improves as the water temperature cools in the fall. The fish will begin to more actively feed before winter's cold weather sets in. Fall is a transition time when the bass can be found at different depths, but are often evident in the shallows and the weed beds.

With more than 900 miles of shoreline and a beautiful mountain view, Lake Guntersville offers plenty of coves and quiet areas for fishing. Whether out on your own or utilizing the services of an expert guide, fishing on Lake Guntersville can be a relaxing and rewarding experience.
