Douglas Lake Fishing Reports
April 7, 2014We have caught several bass in the 4 to 7lb range in the last few days, along with some great crappie catches. Water temps are in the mid to upper 50`s. Being stained to heavily stained up river, and lightly stained on the lower end. There is a lot of bass and crappie just waiting to move shallow with the next full moon. Try fishing swim baits, jerk baits, and rat-l-traps for the bass. For the crappie try fishing a fly & minnow 3 to 6 ft deep on points near spawning flats or pockets. We are catching fishing both shallow and deep right now, but the shallow bite will get very good real soon. The Bass & Crappie Bite Is On Now!
The Crappie should be on the bank by now and just a minnow fished on a plain gold #4 Aberdeen hook fished under a bobber anywhere from 2 to 6 feet should do the trick. You can still catch`em on a fly or your favorite plastic bait, but they seem to hit minnows better during the spawn than any other time of the year.
