Have been going to DHL since I was 8. No one will be disappointed with any part of it. We try to make it down there 3-5x year driving from IN. Recently moved to KY for work so hoping to make it more.

I'm pretty excited about that group heading to DHL! I't been my main go-to all of my life, but things drag me to Cumberland a little more these days. If anyone here has any questions about the area, I am happy to help! I will be there on the family houseboat with my Craz and my family Ts6m that weekend.

13mobiusLSV, where in KY are you now?

There were a few lakes they tossed around, Dale Hollow, Norris, Lanier, and Cumberland.
Last 3 get pretty busy on weekends, so Dale Hallow looked most peaceful and cleanest.

I also tossed out the idea Ft Loudon and Tellico in Knoxville. Catch a factory tour on that Friday.

While DHL might be smaller than some of those mentioned (we have spent lots of time on norris and Cumberland also) there are plenty of longer fingers and coves for great water even on the busiest of weekends.

I agree. We get to Norris - lots of SC boats there.
Never been to Cumberland, but looking at the size, there has to be nice water somewhere on wkends.

I lived in ATL for a few years, did not have good luck at Lanier on weekends. Early in day - not a problem.
On my buddy's yacht - sure, but dang did that place get rough.

Looking forward to hitting Cumberland someday.

Dale Hollow has WAAAAAY more places to get away from the main lake than Cumberland. Dale Hollow says WAAAAY cleaner too; both water clarity and debris. Cumberland is riddled with "mines" and "Season Enders" until 4th of July.. Sometimes later than that - last year was a horrible year for me to own a brand new boat because all of the rain brought debris out all the way through the season on Cumberland. It's a mystery as to why Dale Hollow never suffers from this. My theory is that the Obey River is a much smaller river than the Cumberland, and that Dale Hollow is older than Cumberland (but only by about 10 years)

13mobiusLSV, I'm in Lexington but grew up in Louisville. My uncle - who we're pretty close with - lived in Smithfied (Oldham/Henry Co Line) most of my life, but just moved to Bullit Co.

If you get on the dam end of Cumberland itís much cleaner. The water in otter creek is super clear and clear of debris. Super big creek as well lost of surfing goes down in otter and beaver creek.

Yea, love that tailwater below that dam for fly fishing. We float that on Jon boats from the dam to Burkesville.

That is one big azz dam with probably 6 turbines.

Isnít that what all the girls want - romantic bday weekend in KY with a bunch of Supra and Moomba internet strangers talking about boats, wake boarding, and surfing?

Dang, we just booked a trip to Norris that same week. Maybe next year. We boat at Cumberland, but not before mid July as someone else mentioned. I would like to try Dale Hollow again. Havenít been there since I was a kid. We come from Ohio, so that extra hr or so drive makes it a little less appealing. However, the extra drive is always worth it for good water!
