Channel catfish anglers will find excellent opportunities for superb angling during the 2014 sea-son and beyond. Currently, good numbers of angler acceptable sized fish are available, with larger catfish not uncommon in the pond. The cage catfish program has provided a stocking pro-gram that will sustain the fishery for the future. Largemouth bass anglers will find good oppor-tunities to catch angler acceptable size and larger largemouth bass; however, anglers are reminded to practice catch and release of this important predator fish. Bluegill angling will be nonexistent at Douma Park Pond; however, anglers will see an upswing to the fishery in the next few years. (2014)
