Recreation is a year-round event on Guntersville Lake, whether it’s boating, fishing, hunting, hiking or camping. There’s always plenty to do for the outdoorsman in the lake city.

Guntersville is perhaps best known for its bass fishing. Both the Bass Elite and FLW Tour make regular stops for professional level fishing tournaments on the lake. The lake was the venue for the Bassmaster Classic, the Super Bowl of bass fishing, in both 1976 and again in 2014 and 2020. Myriad other amateur tournaments are held on the lake throughout the year. The bass fishing is good to excellent spring, summer and fall.
