Fishing Tips, Tactics, How-To info: 

Bass fishing good year-round, with the biggest usually caught from February through April when they are near the bank. While the bass population is lower than in the past, many bass in the 3 to 6 pound range were noted.
Bluegill and redear sunfish (shellcracker) are caught by bank and boat anglers from spring through summer. Management efforts to improve numbers of crappie and bream and the size of bass at Dale County Lake are starting to show results. Fall sampling on the lake indicated good spawning success for bream and crappie during the summer of 2007.
Catfish are caught year-round, but the summer months are best. As in 2006, a block-off net will be set up so a larger number of channel catfish can be stocked into the lake this fall. The catfish are scheduled to be delivered in early December. Anglers are encouraged to harvest up to 6 catfish per angler.
Crappie fishing is best in February and April.

Clean public restrooms and concessions are available, including a wide variety of fishing tackle, live and artificial baits, and other fishing supplies, as well as drinks and refreshments.
