Houseboat trip on Dale Hollow Lake
7 days Sept 13-20, 2021
74’ Houseboat sleeps 12 $350 PP
Imagine exploring a 27,700-acre lake with over 620 miles of shoreline. Small coves to anchor overnight. Surrounded by mountains and rock outcropping. The lake is controlled by the army corps. of engineers as well as the shoreline. Development is restricted to marinas and daytime recreation only. You will not see houses or condos on this one, just lots of wildlife. This lake is also known for record Small and Large bass. Bring your pole if you like to fish!
This houseboat has everything from a clothes dryer to hot tub. This is a “Bare-boat charter”, yes, of course, you can be nude but what that means is we have to bring our own food and BYOB. Meal planning will all be worked out long before the trip with all that have signed up.
Some Info about the Lake
Size and Depth Minimum pool elevation is 631 feet above mean sea level (MSL) (21,880 acres), normal pool elevation is 651 feet MSL (27,700 acres) and the maximum flood control pool is 663 feet MSL (30,990 acres). Water fluctuations of 10 to 20 feet can occur throughout the year. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers controls water levels.
Shoreline The entire shoreline is under the jurisdiction of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers. The length is 620 miles at a normal summer pool. Most of the shoreline is heavily wooded, and rock outcroppings are common. Development is restricted to marinas and day-use areas.
Bottom Broken rock, boulders, gravel, and sand are the primary bottom materials. Extensive areas of bedrock outcroppings are found along the shoreline.
Water Water clarity varies throughout the lake, ranging from extremely clear by the dam to light green in the creek arms. Summer Secchi disc readings average between 18 and 20 feet. Dale Hollow is fairly infertile, and there is adequate dissolved oxygen throughout the water column. The remote location and lack of development keeps the water quality quite high.
Cover Primarily submergent varieties, which include chara (sand grass), coontail, and several varieties of pondweed. Due to the clear water, it is not uncommon to find weed growth at the 30-foot level. Recently, Eurasian water milfoil has made an appearance in limited areas. The steep drop-offs and winter drawdown limit the development of emergent and floating vegetation.
