Douglas Lake Fishing Report - 8/26/09

A friend and I drove down to Douglas Lake today and fished from about 12:00 pm - 4:15 pm. It was only the 3rd time I had been on Douglas and the first time in 5 years. We put in at the dam, which was not nearly as crowded as I had expected, and took a left into the Flat Creek area. We jumped point to point and tossed everything at them. Deep diving crank baits, spinnerbaits, jigs, Carolina rigged plastics of all sorts, poppers, flukes, all with no luck. It was very slow, no shad breaking or bass busting. Even the Great Blue Herons seemed inactive, allowing the boat to get extremely close before flying off. We ended up plucking 3 largemouth from the lake using plastic finesse worms. Two of the fish were keepers, a 14 inch and an 16 1/2 inch. Water temperatures were between 77 and 80 degrees, air temperature was around 85 degrees and there was no wind and no clouds. It was hot, humid, and pretty much miserable. But, at least we were fishing instead of working, right? You all have a great day!

Better luck next time, but it still beats a day at the office. You should show off some of your catches at FellowFishermen.com.

Hi Jon! Found you on a BlogCatalog outdoor group so I thought I would check out your blog. I like reading about what's happening in other parts of the country. I'll follow along to keep up!

If it makes you feel any better, the fishing is slowing a bit here, too. Just that time of year I think.

At least you have still fish even though it's not that many as you are expecting. Better luck next time, maybe you can fish more than you have expected. Lol! I was like that when I went to tennessee fly fishing with my best buddy. Unfortunately, I haven't fish any unlike my buddy but the second time around was kinda luck for me cause I have fished 3 huge browns but for the whole period of time we have stayed there. XD
