The excellent water quality of Dale Hollow Lake is important to the operation of the Dale Hollow National Fish Hatchery located just below Dale Hollow Dam. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service operates the hatchery on 40 acres of land leased from the Corps of Engineers. Built in 1965, and expanded in 1994, the Dale Hollow Hatchery is the largest Federal trout hatchery east of the Mississippi producing 1.5 million trout annually-an average production of 300,000 pounds-for distribution in Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee. The hatchery is open to visitors every day from 7 am to 4pm.   For more information visit The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's Dale Hollow National Fish Hatchery web site.

The lake abounds with fish and wildlife and is the home of one of the largest wintering Bald Eagle populations in the area. The magnificent birds are generally seen from mid-December through mid-February.
