Lake Details


What you need to know about fishing Guntersville Lake

Lake Guntersville is the largest body of water in Alabama with roughly 67,900 acres and stretches 75 miles from Nickajack Dam to Guntersville Dam. The lake is located in the northern part of Alabama between Bridgeport and Guntersville along the Tennessee River. Free boat launches and private marinas line the shore up and down the lake providing easy access to the water. With a max depth of 62 feet and an abundance of aquatic vegetation, this fishery provides anglers with unlimited options to locate and catch fish. Although there is a great deal of different species, Largemouth Bass are the most targeted. Many tournaments are held along the lake year-round. They range from weekday night tournaments to the biggest stages in the industry, including the 2020 Bassmaster Classic. Largemouth Bass are often caught flipping baits around vegetation or submerged stumps. Panfish can be caught year-round but the most popular times are late spring to early summer. Sauger and Walleye are often caught when they make runs up the creeks during the winter/early spring. Max Depth: 62 ft, Average Depth: 15 ft
