Fishing Douglas Lake, Tennessee

02/03/19 Fishing Report for Douglas Lake: (See Fishing Report Archive at bottom
of page)
Bass, smallmouth, largemouth and spotted bass, are the most pursued species at this
time of the year. They are generally found in the deeper water of the old river and
creeks channels, as well as both submerged and above water river ledges. We
recommend using deep diving crankbaits and jigs with trailers. .

Description of the Lake:
Douglas Lake is one of the state's top crappie lakes. It also has plenty of bass and
anglers that pursue them. The lake has good fish holding cover and structure. It is a
30,000-acre reservoir located in the northeast part of the state near the town of
Dandridge, TN. It has 550 miles of shoreline but that varies with the season. The lake
is drawn down during the winter and that changes the shoreline a lot. There are plenty
of places to fish from the banks, docks, etc., during the summer, but for wintertime
fishing, there is far less bank access and you need a boat.
