Re: Douglas reservoir
Its been a while since i fished it. there are walleye, sunfish, wiper and trout in it. Fishing can be very good there, but the water level has been low the last couple of years. Don't know if the level came up this year but I am looking forward to ice fishing it this winter.

Re: Douglas reservoir
Douglas is a great fishery. It has lots of different species in it. The trout grow very well there despite that it is mostly put and take. I have never caught a wiper out of there but I know they are there. What species are you trying for and I can give you some more tips.

Oh and if it gets a solid lid I'll be on the ice in a second.

Re: Douglas reservoir
You can bring a belly boat. There is a boat ramp but alot of times there isn't enough water to reach it. The best wiper spots I have heard are right off the boat ramp and off the dam near the pipe. The carp fishing is best on the south end of the lake. Trout can be caught everywhere but the best spots for me are the west side of the lake. Throw minnows out under a bobbber and you'll do good and you'll catch multi species.
