I was down to Dollar Lake recently, had the kids down to the park.  The 'story in a nutshell' is me and a lot of other folks fished the bridge area, the cove between the bridge and the island, and water pretty much all around the island. Lots of fish breaching the surface, but no one catching any thing, and I'm pretty sure most of the fishers didn't even get a bite. I offered my presentaton shallow (say a couple feet) to down much deeper, say down to 10 feet, and many many depths in between. My mistake might have been using just plastics (worms, grubs, etc) and hair jigs.

 

So if a fellow, or a lady, and/or the kids, wanted to fish that provincial park area, what specsis of fish are there, and what techniques do you prefer.  (I'm not interested in the hearing about the lakers that are 90 feet down in the middle of the pond), I am just interested (and creating this topic for others who have same interest) in bank fishing the provincial park area.

 

People told me trout, bass, and chain pickerel are there, and others told me only trout.

Only thing I have ever seen caught in Dollar Laker is trout,, and suckers,, I sure hope there are no bass or CPs there.. you need a boat  to fish there ,, Been a few years since I have fished there. I used to run  scout camp there and the boys used to catch a few at the far end of the lake .. never caught anything other than suckers by the bridge in the park.

I don't know what, that is why I started this topic. Others have answered though. Thank you.

What were you fishing for? I wasn't there watching the fish rolling on the top, so I cannot tell you what they were, but you asked about a technique to possibly enable you to catch whatever it was that you didn't know what you were fishing for. I suggested presenting a dry fly. Hope that makes it a bit easier to understand.  You are welcome.

One of the park attendants told me afterwards that there are no bass or CPs there.  I'll have to focus on trout next time I go there, even though trout is generally not on my radar.

Went out there once after the "Lakers" after we didn't catch any of those we trolled the whole thing right up the very end and back down the other side,  was around this time of year to mid july and never seen or got a hit.  But as above I am only aware of trout and think its only spring that you can really find anything but hey i could be wrong.

 

- trout flys, hook and worm would be only thing that I think would work on the bright side atleast you seen fish :)
