    According to the COE chart : https://www.lrl.usace.army.mil/Missi...arren-Profile/ .... it looks like it would be at around 15ft. But, this reading is taken at the dam, so it would vary in other parts of the lake. This reading was taken on the 9th, so bare that in mind, as well.

    Thanks Crappie! I couldn't figure out if it was in the 5-10ft range or 15ft.

    Thermocline

    Is the Thermocline fairly the same in all surrounding lakes? I was wondering what it might be at Dale Hollow Lake.

    I don't think Dale's thermocline is as shallow as Central Ky lakes. At least it wouldn't seem to be, given this July 18th TWRA report :


    Reservoir Conditions: Fishing is fair and the water temperature is 87 degrees. The water level is at 647 feet and the lake is falling.

    Smallmouth Bass: A few smallmouths are being caught at night on soft plastics and jigs while fishing points in 20 feet of water.

    Largemouth Bass: Several largemouths are being caught on soft plastics while fishing drops in the rivers in 20 feet of water.

    Walleye: A few walleye are being caught while jigging spoons on clay banks in 28-30 feet of water.

    Trout: A few trout are being caught trolling with down riggers and spoons in 45 feet of water.
